Translation: For the first time in a long time, the average American is living a shorter life. Nevada Health is here to help. We’re a brand new weekly radio show from KUNV and UNLV. We sit down to pick the brains of the state and region’s top doctors, scientists, and health experts to arm you with the know-how to improve you and your loved ones’ health. You’ll learn everything from how to cut your risk of heart attack and back pain, to easy ways to convince your family—and yourself—how to move more and eat better. You’ll even pick up simple tactics to navigate the twisted terrain of hospitals and health care. Are YOU ready to improve your health?
