In our regular series Healthwatch, as many as 10,000 children in Baltimore City Schools have problems with their vision. Dr. Leana Wen joins to discuss the Vision for Baltimore program that provides free on-site vision testing and prescription eyeglasses to all city school students from elementary to middle school. 

Then, Senior Producer Rob Sivak talks to Dr. Daniele Fallin of Johns Hopkins University about the possible connection between the environment and autism.

And, the legendary fighter Joe Louis is the subject of a new jazz opera. Producer Carolyn Black-Sotir and cast member Samuel McKelton, tell us about Shadowboxer, the latest project in the Center Stage Play Lab.

Host, Midday (M-F 12:00-1:00)
Rob is Midday's senior producer.
