We're talking to guests from the Vermont-based Center for Communication in Medicine about how both doctors and patients can improve communication.

If you feel like you and your healthcare provider speak different languages, how do you get on the same page about your health? We’re talking about how to facilitate the tough conversations that need to happen for the healthcare system to work and for Vermonters to stay healthy.

We're joined by Celia Bandman and Dr. Bernard Bandman of the Center for Communication in Medicine.

Also on the program: Bill Sorrell served as Vermont's Attorney General from 1997 until last week, just shy of 20 years. We're talking to him about his time in office.

Broadcast live on Wednesday, January 11, 2017 at noon; rebroadcast at 7 p.m.
