Connections: Healthy Friday - Overtesting; Men's Health, Implanted Heart Devices

It's a packed hour of Healthy Friday. First, we find out if we're being overtested and overtreated when we go to the doctor's office. Dr. Gil Welch of Dartmouth Medical School joins us to see if we really need the health tests we take.

Then, we get a preview of an upcoming men's health conference with Dr. Jean Joseph of the University of Rochester Medical Center. 

We wrap up the hour by understanding the psychology of implanted heart devices with Dr. Sam Sears from East Carolina University.
