Jack’s journey managing Robin sequence
Jennifer and 8-week-old Jack Jennifer Ryan is a disability expert. She started her career doing home visits with drug-addicted and abused babies, then ran a center and started a program for kids with autism and now works in a collaborative elementary school.

How to Make Something You Don't Really Enjoy a Habit
Something amazing happened this morning. Instead of hopping out of bed, having breakfast, then plunging myself headlong into work, I casually sipped my coffee, ate my muesli, then wandered into my office for a 30-minute meditation session before even turning on my computer. What's amazing isn't that I've done this once, but that I've been doing it for months. Even more amazing is that I love it. Meditation is not an easy habit to develop, because the reward is not immediate or obvious. Meditation is not an easy habit to develop, because the reward is not immediate or obvious.

25% Of Docs Are Born Outside Of The U.S. - Can Immigration Reform Solve Our Doc Shortage?
Health care is a critical part of the U.S. economy, providing jobs for millions of Americans and trillions of dollars in expenditures. However, growing health needs of baby boomers, coupled with acute shortages of health workers, are straining the sector. Unfortunately, labor-force issues will be exacerbated in the coming years as retiring baby boomers strain the system and up to one-third of physicians retire because they fall into that same age category. Currently, more than one-quarter of physicians and surgeons in the United States are foreign born. In addition to physicians, roughly one-fifth of nurses and home health...

Study Says Thumb Sucking May Help Keep Children From Developing Certain Allergies
BOSTON (CBS) — Like lots of kids, when Gracie Ingram was a baby, she used her hands to soothe herself. “When I was little instead of sucking a pacifier I sucked my fingers instead,” says Gracie. And like lots of parents, her dad, Chris Ingram, couldn’t seem to stop her. “We felt like we ought to discourage it but she was pretty tenacious,” explains Chris. But Gracie may have been doing a good thing.

Cecil The Lion Died A Year Ago. Here's What's Changed - And What Hasn't.
July 1 marks the anniversary of the death of Cecil the lion. In 2015, American dentist Walter Palmer paid more than $55,000 to lure the internationally famous lion out of Zimbabwe's Hwange National Park and killed him, sparking international outrage and re-igniting debate on the ethics of so-called “trophy hunting.”  Some people criticized the public’s — and the media’s — intense focus on Cecil, pointing out it seems silly to be disproportionately angry over one lion when so many other lions, other animals, and human beings are suffering or in danger.

Delivering Alcohol IBA: Broadening the base from health to non-health contexts

Evaluation and monitoring should be built in to new initiatives to increase the chances of appropriate allocation and use of resources and to promote a culture of learning from ...
