'Health Link' airs Thursdays at 7:30 p.m. and Sundays at 10:30 a.m. on WMHT.

Whether you or someone you care for is struggling with a health problem, or if you are well and want to stay that way, 'Health Link' is a vital resource for our community.

If you have a question or comment, please send us an e-mail. Your feedback may even appear on a future episode of 'Health Link.'
