As Zika continues to spread, public health officials are discovering new ways the virus can be transmitted. Also, over 40 million Americans reside in areas with limited access to dentists. Some are hoping to make dental therapy legal in Ohio to help improve dental health in these communities. And, Columbus Public Health is teaming up with local farmers to create farmer's markets, where fresh produce will be available to a greater number of Columbus' neighborhoods.



Columbus Public Health will host three Farmers' Markets this summer. The first event begins on Thursday, July 28th from 9:45 a.m. until 1 p.m. It is held at Columbus Public Health, 240 Parsons Ave. 

This show originally aired on July 27, 2016 at 11 a.m.
