Conversation Medicine, Robotics Retrospective, and More, April 2012

Reporter Angie Weidinger finds a St. Louis company with a product that’s challenging the leading cause of blindness in adults over 50, and it comes in a small, all natural vitamin. We look at Conservation Medicine which examines the complex balance between human health, animal health and environmental conditions. It’s been called “the varsity sport for the mind” and it’s here in St. Louis. We show tomorrow’s innovators today and revisit the FIRST Robotics World Finals, brainchild of exceptional innovator Dean Kamen.

This series explores the latest science and technology news in the St. Louis area.
