On today's program, we continue our 2nd annual "State of Houston" series – exploring the state of Greater Houston's economy, transportation, health, education, environment, politics and culture.

Today, we look at what's happening here in health and science with News 88.7’s reporter who covers those beats: Carrie Feibel.
