Monday's program will feature an enlightening discussion about the healing benefits of silence, with Anne LeClaire, author of "Listening Below the Noise."

"This new televised platform gives Chicago's diverse population a voice in matters affecting their use of health care," explained Janecek. "The open discussion format is designed to help mend the disparity between the wealth of health care resources available and the dearth of people who are actually aware of them." Ms. Janecek, a nationally known health care expert and author, is the host of this groundbreaking program.
