This week we ask what it means to be hale and hearty as we focus on health and wellness.

We follow doctor's orders this week and focus on health and wellness. We'll find out why a local medical school uses patients as instructors, and meet members of the D.C. Sled Sharks, a sled-hockey team for kids with disabilities. Plus, a local scientist explains how the racket of city life affects our feathered friends, and we meet a man who's trying to live life to the fullest -- even as he loses his sight.
