Monday on Lake Effect: The State of Heart Research, Fit For You, the Health of Small Farming

Monday on Lake Effect:


We'll talk about the state of heart research with a Milwaukee doctor, the incoming president of the American Heart Association. Then, why a group of Parkinson’s Disease patients is gathering in a boxing gym in West Allis. We'll learn about the challenges faced by family and other small-scale farms around the country. And as Spring has finally taken hold, we'll hear a seasonally appropriate song recorded in the Lake Effect performance studio.


  • Dr. Ivor Benjamin, Froedtert/MCW, American Heart Association
  • Darrell Jack and Cricket Kriehn, Rock Steady Boxing
  • Dave Kozlowski, Pinehold Gardens; Sarah Lloyd, Wisconsin Farmers Union; Kirsten Jurcek, Brattset Family Farm
  • Nora Jane Struthers, musician
