Exercise As A Cure-All

One doctor says he has the ultimate cure-all— and it’s not from a pharmacy.

On Tuesday's Up to Date, we examine the “exercise cure” and how it seems to decrease disease and improve general health.


  • Dr. Jordan Metzl, sports medicine physician at the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York City

HEAR MORE: Dr. Jordan Metzl speaks at 7 p.m. May 1 at Unity Temple on The Plaza, 707 W. 47th St., Kansas City, Mo. For tickets, contact Rainy Day Books

When I host Up To Date each morning at 9, my aim is to engage the community in conversations about the Kansas City area’s challenges, hopes and opportunities. I try to ask the questions that listeners want answered about the day’s most pressing issues and provide a place for residents to engage directly with newsmakers.
