Today we bring you a new book on Brooklyn Bridge Park, which has transformed a derelict commercial waterfront - into a park that reflects Brooklyn's resurgence. We also bring you information on a new federal ruling that protects elderly consumers from abuse & neglect in Nursing Homes.

But first, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, or PTSD, is the signature disorder for up to 30% of returning veterans. Treatment can be challenging & one alternative therapy being used, is Equine Assisted Therapy, also known as EAT. It is experimental and widely used, but there has been little research on it, until now.

Joining us in the studio from the Columbia University Department of Psychiatry are, Dr. Yuval Neria, Professor of Psychology who directs the Columbia Veterans Research Center at New York State Psychiatric Institute, and Dr. Prudence Fisher, Associate Professor of Psychiatric Social Work, a Research Scientist at the Psychiatric Institute.

Also joining us is Jody Jacob-McVey, an Equine Specialist, in the Man O' War Treatment Team.

Today we have with us a new book on helping kids in crisis, written by professionals at the Bellevue Hospital, Children's Comprehensive Psychiatric Emergency Program. We also have with us an organization called You Can Thrive that helps cancer survivors to heal.

But first, the New York Civil Liberties Union, also known as NYCLU, is one of the nation's foremost defenders of civil liberties. Thanks to their efforts, the New York Court of Appeals recently ruled that the current legal definition of a parent must be broadened to include partners who are not a child's biological or adoptive parent. New York has lagged behind in expanding this definition of parenthood and so this is a landmark moment.

Please join us in welcoming, Donna Lieberman Executive Director of the NYCLU.

Today we bring you information on how New York State is considering legislation, that would approve Aid in dying laws, also known as death with dignity laws. We also have with us a very successful non-profit program that works with Rikers inmates, and is helping them with Getting Out & Staying Out.

But first, we begin with the NYU Langone Cohen Veterans Center. Did you know that more military service members are dying - after they come home, rather than on the battlefield? Our heroes are committing suicide at a current rate of 22 per day, and it is believed that this is the result of post-traumatic stress, and related mental health conditions.

Joining us in the studio from the NYU Langone Cohen Veterans Center are Dr. Charles Marmar, the Director, and Dr. Irina Wen, Director of the Military Family Clinic.

Today we bring you an inspiring story about a local businessman who is helping children in underdeveloped countries to fight parasitic diseases, and he's using shoes as his tools. We also have with us an expert on fighting the Flu with tips on how to survive it.

But first, most of us don't realize that 20.9 million people around the world are victims of human trafficking, now a $150 billion global industry. Plymouth Church in Brooklyn was a stop on the Underground Railroad, with a noted history as an anti-abolitionist church in the 19th century. Recently, they started an anti-trafficking ministry, as they say, this is nothing more than modern day slavery. The name of the ministry is "We Are the New Abolitionists."

Joining us in the studio are,

Today we bring you some of the latest thinking and research on Tourette Syndrome, a disorder that plagues many but is a mystery to most of us. We also will have with us the Artistic Director of the legendary Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, a company that continues to astound us with their work.

But first, Skin cancer is the most common form of cancer in the United States, and one in five Americans, will develop it, over the course of their lives. It's also one of the most preventable types of cancers. In fact, if basal cell carcinoma, the most common kind, is caught early enough, it has a cure rate approaching a 100 percent.

Joining us in the studio are Dr. Orit Markowitz, a Dermatologist & Assistant Professor of Dermatology at Mount Sinai Hospital, and Todd Pobiner, a Patient of Dr. Markowitz, who has had multiple melanomas.

Today, we bring you some important information on the student loan crisis and ways to avoid trouble with your credit history. We also bring you some information on the heroin epidemic that is reaching alarming levels in New York State.

But first, did you know that this year in New York City more people will be killed by cars, than murdered by gun violence. Traffic crashes are the number one cause of injury-related death for children, and the second leading cause for senior citizens. Sadly at 30 mph, only 70% survive; but at 25 mph the survival rate is 90%.

Joining us in the studio are three New Yorkers who have lost family members to traffic crashes.

Hsi-Pei (SHE PAY) Liao, lost his 3-year-old daughter Allison, when she was in a crosswalk in Flushing & holding her grandmother's hand.

Joy Clarke's daughter, Renee Thompson, was on her way to work when she was killed by a truck. She was also in the crosswalk & crossing with the light on the Upper East Side.

Mary Beth Kelly, was riding a bike with her husband, Dr. Carl Henry Nacht, & also in a crosswalk, when a tow truck failed to yield while exiting the pound off the West Side Highway.
