From Public Radio International, the hour-long call-in radio program debuts on WUOT 91.9 FM on July 2. Zorba Paster On Your Health airs Sundays at 11 a.m.
Dr. Zorba Paster Paster joins co-host Tom Clark to talk about what’s new in medicine, share tips for healthy living and share a low-fat “Heart-Healthy Recipe of the Week.” Sandwiched in between, Dr. Paster answers health, fitness and nutrition questions from listeners.
