Early Life Exposure to Perfluoroalkyl Substances and Childhood Metabolic Function

So the group is asking pediatricians to screen children for levels of physical activity at every visit, to work with caregivers to set realistic strat...

(American Geriatrics Society) Older adults often face new disabilities after a hospital stay for a serious illness. Among the problems they may need to adjust to are difficulties with bathing and dressing, shopping and preparing meals, and getting around inside and outside the home. These new disabilities can lead to being hospitalized again, being placed in a nursing home, and more permanent declines in well-being. The longer a serious disability lasts, the worse it can be for an older adult.
