Episode 10 - Teens and Technology: Texting and Driving, Talking to your Teen about Technology, MP3 Players and Hearing Loss, Medical Trivia
Dr. Degrauw, Dr. Patel and Dr. Kelley are our hosts this month as we discuss the rapidly changing world of teens and technology. In Health News, we discuss texting and driving, a dangerous practice that causes many deaths each year. In Parenting Tips, we cover strategies for talking with your teen about their use of technology while driving. We also discuss how the use of MP3 players could lead to hearing loss, and we have the answer to last month's medical trivia question, which was "How long does it take food to digest in your stomach?"
