04/22/15: Foreclosures On The First Coast; Heart Health; Mee Mee TV's 'Tonight! With Jim Alabiso'

Jeff Turner

With Florida still leading the nation in foreclosures, this week the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development announced it will provide grants to support 30 housing counseling organizations across the state. Half a million homes around Florida are still underwater or in foreclosure including many thousands in our area. We speak with foreclosure defense attorney Chip Parker of the firm Parker and DuFresne.

First Coast cardiologist and UF Health Director of Imaging Dr. Timothy Patrick joins us to discuss he is advocating for a healthy diet and exercise over medication in his new book, "Invest in Yourself: A Cardiologist's Narrative for Heart Health."

And get a preview of Mee Mee TV's new live late night talk show "Tonight!" from host Jim Alabiso.
