Boston television reporter Laurie Garrett interviews co-founder of the National Breast Cancer Coalition, Dr. Susan Love on the myths and realities regarding breast cancer. Formerly with the Center for Disease Control and head of the team that named the Ebola virus, Dr. Karl Johnson discusses the steps in preventing and controlling outbreaks. Dr. Kay Redfield Jamison, professor of psychiatry at John Hopkins University, provides a firsthand account of living with mental illness.
