Skier Safety Campaign, Asthma Misdiagnoses, Trails Wheelchair, Railway Troubadour

Listen Now

On Christmas Eve six years ago, Chauncey and Kelli Johnson lost their young daughter in a skiing accident with a snowboarder. The Johnsons have now created a skier safety campaign. Then, asthma is a common disease but a new study finds it's also commonly misdiagnosed. An article in the most recent issue of the Journal of the American Medical Association says a third of adults who are told they have asthma actually don't. Also, a paraplegic athlete from Denver has found a new way to get around the rugged trails of Colorado -- she recently started using a new chair that she says has reintroduced her to the world of hiking. And there’s a new musical feature coming to some long-distance passenger trains in the U.S. ... a singing troubadour.
