Zika Virus, Water Concerns, and Iowa Results

The Zika virus is emerging as an international health threat according to the World Health Organization.  How much impact could the virus have here?  What do you need to know if you're traveling to impacted areas?  A Cleveland infectious disease specialist de-mystifies the virus for us.

After the public health crisis in Flint, Michigan and smaller-scale water issues closer to home, notably in Sebring, some may wonder about their own tap water.  We'll take a look at the infrastructure issues playing a role in water concerns.

The Iowa Caucuses are in the books and the race rolls on to New Hampshire.  We'll talk about the results and how it impacts the campaign of Ohio Governor John Kasich.
