Radio Smart Talk for Tuesday, April 23:

Most of us know what we're supposed to do to live healthier -- eat more fruits and vegetables, avoid fats, exercise or get more physical activity, don't stay in the sun for long periods of time without protection.  Those are just a few of the rules to live by to maintain a healthier lifestyle.

But how many of us actually follow those rules?  Even with the knowledge of what's accepted as working, why is it so difficult to behave in a way that's better for our bodies and reduces the possibilities of illness or disease?

As part of witf's on-going Transforming Health initiative, Tuesday's Radio Smart Talk examines health behavior.  Appearing on the program will be Pinnacle Health's Medical Director Dr. Joseph Cincotta and Dr. Karen Glanz, Director of the Center for Health Behavior Research at the Perelman School of Medicine and School of Nursing at the University of Pennsylvania.

Also, a week after the Boston Marathon bombings, we continue to hear stories from the survivors and witnesses.

Tuesday's program will feature a few people with Central Pennsylvania connections.
