Good afternoon, you’re listening to Spotlight Health, on Aspen Public Radio. This is the fifth episode in our series on key health issues.

Today we’ll hear about ways technology is making it easier for people to live their lives. That includes prosthetics and robotics. Think of one of those really cool science terms you learned back in grade school or middle school. Exosekelton! A Roaring Fork Valley resident is using one to start moving again.

And the ever expanding field of 3-D printing could make that even more effective.

That’s this hour on Spotlight Health.

Episode 5 of 6 in a series to explore key health issues, with guests also participating in the Aspen Ideas Festival Spotlight: Health programming this summer.

This program is supported by The Anschutz Medical Campus. This June, The Anschutz Medical Campus and 300 other health and health care leaders will be featured at Spotlight: Health at the Aspen Institute. More information about how The Anschutz Campus is pioneering the way medical discoveries, teaching and practices work together, can be found at AnschutzMedicalCampusColorado.com.
