Product Description
Systemic scleroderma (''hard skin'') is an autoimmune connective tissue disease. An overproduction of collagen may cause hardness, or fibrosis, not only in the skin but in many of the body's tissues and organ systems. Scleroderma Coping Strategies carefully describes the disease mechanisms of scleroderma, reveals the psychological challenges sufferers face and explores the relationship between contemplative or spiritual reality and the healing process.

#492 Flint Water Crisis
This week we dig into the Flint water crisis: what happened, how it got so bad, what turned the tide, what's still left to do, and the mix of science, politics, and activism that are still needed to finish pulling Flint out of the crisis. We spend the hour with Dr Mona Hanna-Attisha, a physician, scientist, activist, the founder and director of the Pediatric Public Health Initiative, and author of the book "What the Eyes Don't See: A Story of Crisis, Resistance, and Hope in an American City".
