For our regular Healthwatch series Dr. Leana Wen, Baltimore’s Health Commissioner, joins us in-studio to discuss issues affecting the health and well-being of Charm City residents. 

This month she joins Tom to discuss the Vision for Baltimore program that provides free on-site vision testing and prescription eyeglasses to all city school students from elementary to middle school. Dr. Wen also shares the city's plan to prepare for a potential rise in Zika virus rates this summer.
