We reach into the Metro Connection archives to bring you some of our favorite stories about health and wellness. We'll meet a man who came down with an extremely rare brain disorder, and find out how that disorder has affected his art. We'll go skating with an ice-hockey team for children with disabilities, and we'll do a check-up of our region's roads and bridges, to see how well they're doing these days.
