Buffalo Bills player Damar Hamlin suddenly collapsed and suffered cardiac arrest during last night's football game against the Cincinnati Bengals. We talk with Houston Methodist cardiologist Dr. Kevin Lisman about the rare condition he suffered, what to do in the event someone you know undergoes cardiac arrest, and the health risks of professional athletes.

Then, with a new year comes new opportunities for change. Following the indulgence associated with the holiday season, many may seek to adopt a new routine that focuses on personal fitness. History proves maintaining these fitness goals can be a challenge to keep.

We speak with life coach and fitness expert Terry the Trainer about how you can not only stick with your fitness goals in the new year, but also achieve mental wellness.
