Connections: Discussing heart health

A new study shows the number of young adults dying from heart failure is on the rise. We're joined by a cardiologist and a dietitian who help us understand the research and treatment, as well as a young man diagnosed with a heart condition who shares his journey.  

In studio:

  • Dr. Himabindu Vidula, M.D., transplant cardiologist, and assistant professor of cardiology at the University of Rochester Medical Center
  • Yimy Queipo Rodriguez, registered dietitian at the Center for Community Health & Prevention at the University of Rochester Medical Center
  • Cody Crandall, heart transplant patient
