The Current for June 28, 2022
Today on The Current:

Guest host Nahlah Ayed hears from some of those patients, and speaks with Dr. Rod Lim, medical director of the Paediatric Emergency Department at the London Health Sciences Centre's Children's Hospital; Dr. Judy Morris, an ER physician and president of the Association des médecins d'urgence du Québec; Dr. Sean Moore, chief of staff at Lake of the Woods District Hospital in Kenora, Ont.; and Jamie Stewart, an ER nurse at Cobequid Community Health Centre in Lower Sackville, N.S.
And if there was a pill to slow or even stop the aging process, would you take it? We hear about growing older and aging healthily in episode two of the CBC podcast Unlocking The Fountain. Read more about our summer podcast series here.
