Fruit Juice vs Soda

A piece published earlier this month on NPR’s website talks about common misconceptions with regards to fruit juices and how healthy they are.

The NEW Heart of Detroit

This summer the new heart of Detroit will be unveiled: DMC Heart Hospital. I was at the Belle Isle Grand Prix this weekend to talk to WXYZ Channel 7 about our new Heart Hospital, how it will be the first and only heart hospital in the state, and the first new hospital in the city of Detroit for a generation. These are truly exciting times to be at the DMC.
