Wellness Wednesday: Big Health Ideas, Cancer Tales, Domestic Abuse

11 am

This year, 1.5 million people will be diagnosed with cancer. Many of them will lose their energy, their appetite and their hair, but not their sense of humor. This hour we'll hear funny healing narratives on living well with cancer and without hair. We’ll also talk about the physician's response to domestic abuse, and hear about some OSU student innovations in a race to improve patients’ lives.


  • Dr. Clay Marsh, Chief Innovation Officer, Director for the Center for Critical Care at OSU
  • Pat Wynn Brown, humorist, creator of Hairdo Monologues
  • Dr. Diane Gorgas, Residency Director, department of emergency medicine, Wexner Medical Center
