Catholic Charities is the refugee resettlement agency for mid-Missouri. They also offer immigration services at a low rate. Volunteer coordinator GRACE WILDENHAUS tells us how they serve refugees coming to our country to "flee persecution." Also, OsteoStrong Columbia owner DAYNA GLANZ talks about what she calls the "silent disease": osteoporosis in men over 50; she adds, "most don't realize they have it until they fracture."
