Cleveland Clinic


Nearly 25 million Americans -- about 8 percent of the population -- have asthma.  It effects more than one million Ohioans.

While people suffering from asthma may not be aware of it, a Cleveland researcher has discovered, there's a potentially protective aspect of the disease.

On this week’s Exploradio, WKSU’s Jeff St.Clair looks at what may be asthma’s silver lining.

The Cleveland Clinic has unveiled a new app to help coaches determine whether student athletes are ready to return to the field after taking a hit.

The app has been in development for seven years and is being rolled out to nearly four-dozen participating school districts and colleges in Ohio. Each player takes a series of diagnostic tests at the beginning of the season to gauge reaction time and coordination. Those results are then stored. If an athlete takes a hit, they must re-take the tests to see if their cognitive abilities have suffered.

The Cleveland Clinic says it will pull an annual fundraiser from Donald Trump's Mar-a-Lago resort after all.

The Clinic had initially resisted pressure from health professionals and others over the Republican president's support for repealing the Affordable Care Act and cutting federal budget dollars to medical research. It had said the event was not political.

The clinic said this morning it made the decision to pull the event after "careful consideration" of various issues. It did not elaborate.
