This Week On Metro Connection: Health & Wellness


Welcome to Metro Connection, I'm Rebecca Sheir and today, sorry, today we're focusing on health and wellness. And I got to say, the timing couldn't be more perfect or more hilarious, really, given that I've been nursing a bit of a head and chest cold this week so please bear with me. But honestly, a cold is small potatoes compared with some of the health challenges many people deal with on a daily basis, both physical and mental.


And today, we're bringing you some of their stories. We'll meet a man who's pursuing his acting dreams, even as he loses his vision. We'll find out how a local woman is dealing with intense claustrophobia this holiday travel season and we'll talk with members of the D.C. Sled Sharks, an ice hockey team for kids with physical disabilities.
