Brain health was in the spotlight in May on Your Health. We read about new findings that too little or too much sleep can age the brain, and that being overweight is linked to dementia. We also learned about a disease called primary progressive aphasia, which is often misdiagnosed as Alzheimer's disease or the result of depression or stroke, and which gradually robs the brain of language and communication skills.
This Weekend shared events from Scene Magazine of the Gainesville Sun and Go of the Ocala Star Banner with our listening audience. Top stories for the month of May were the national touring exhibit Wild Music at the Florida Museum of Natural History which opened May 28, the 59th annual Florida Folk Festival held Memorial Day weekend and the Junior League of Ocala presented a Pigout BBQ Bash at the Florida Horse Park.
