The edition of The Method focuses on issues surrounding children’s health.

Seasonal Affective Disorder is a temporary depression that often shows up in the winter. You may think of it as a problem only for adults. But the American Academy of Pediatrics estimates three percent of children between the ages of 9 and 17 suffer from it. Child and adolescent psychiatrist John Kupfner of Peninsula Lighthouse in East Tennessee says  he believes the condition is under-diagnosed in children.

The funding model that keeps the University of Tennessee in business is unsustainable. That was the message delivered to state officials last month from UT system president Joe DiPietro.

Now in the fifth year of his presidency, DiPietro says one of his biggest challenges will be finding a way to keep the university affordable for students and functioning as state funding stagnates. DiPietro isn't optimistic the General Assembly will significantly increase funding for the state's higher education institutions.
