02/12/16: Media Roundtable Week In Review; HEAL Foundation; Baptist Health's 'Girls Night Out'

Media Roundtable Week in Review Logo

  We discuss the week's biggest news stories with our roundtable of local journalists: Mark Woods, Florida Times-Union columnist; A.G. Gancarski, Florida Politics writer; Claire Goforth, Folio Weekly editor; and WJCT news analyst John Burr.

Topics include this week's community conversation hosted by Jacksonville Mayor Lenny and Sheriff Mike Williams about youth violence and public safety, the new investigation into the sinking of the cargo ship El Faro, and more.

An exciting event is coming up next week to help support the thousands of children here on the First Coast on the autism spectrum. The HEAL (Healing Every Autistic Life) Foundation's Party for a Groovin’ Good Cause and Bobby Weed’s Golf Gig make up a two-day charity event at the Tournament Players Club - Sawgrass  in Ponte Vedra Beach. We preview the events with Leslie and Bobby Weed, co-founders of the HEAL Foundation.

And Patricia Calhoun, MD, medical director of Baptist Health’s Women’s Health Strategy, joins us with a look at the upcoming "Girls Night Out: Mind, Body and Spirit" event, presented by Baptist Health's Good For you wellness program.
