It’s also where our loved ones spend their time anxiously waiting for us to get better, to hear good or bad news. So then, why are hospitals such miserable places?

There ’s Now an At-Home Menopause Test, But Does Anyone Need It?
COVID-19 changed many things about medicine, not the least of which is how we think about do-it-yourself testing.
