This is the first generation of American children expected to live shorter lives than their parents. If that's not a call to action, I don't know what is.
Americans should not have to live in fear that they will go bankrupt if they get sick. People should not have to go without the medication they need just because their elected officials aren't willing to challenge the drug lobby. The public is fed up, and they have a right to be fed up.
Parents, teachers, school administrators, policymakers, and city planners are all responsible for helping to create a childhood obesity crisis. They must all now be responsible for helping to eradicate it.
Being diagnosed with bipolar disorder at 18 made a lot of sense to me and was long overdue. It may sound kind of odd but having bipolar disorder prepared me to become an entrepreneur and has actually taught me a lot of lessons that I would later apply to business.

In 2000, Douglas Hanahan and Robert A. Weinberg articulated the concept of cancer hallmarks as a foundation for understanding cancer's biology across traditional cancer types. Three initiatives built on that foundation now promise to accelerate development of more powerful life-saving therapies.

We need to refocus our resources and attention on the two things that really matter: (1) stopping men and women from getting breast cancer in the first place -- primary prevention; and (2) preventing metastasis if they do.

We must remember that health does not exist in a vacuum separate from wealth, from the laws we write, from the systems we create to protect our citizens, or from the injustices that exist in each of these things.
When science is subject to the political whims of Congress, no one wins.
The feeling you have as an alopecia sufferer is initially panic followed by "oh god not again"!? Because the thing is you never know when a patch is going to appear - when it's going to grow back - if it's going to grow back?
Katrina pushed us to consider new ways of reaching hard-to-reach populations; now, the challenge is to keep that momentum going, so that the lapses in our initial response to Katrina are never repeated.
It's hard enough to keep up with changing nutritional guidelines. But unless you're an expert, it's damn near impossible to tell the difference between independent research and research ginned up by trade groups and marketers.
A decade later, we are aware of the increasing frequency and severity of extreme weather events associated with climate change. Together, we are making tremendous progress in planning for a myriad of needs these disasters create.
However, in a speed round of photo-word pairings, those same docs were quicker to pair pictures of black people with words such as unpleasant and resistant, versus willing and cooperative.
This is a complicated story, but an important one. It's a story of determination, of progress and of creativity. It's part of the rich history of the larger social justice movement for LGBTQ communities in our country -- one that has not been at the forefront of the conversation.
From the beginning, it was clear that a medical response alone was not going to stop Ebola. And while doctors were rightly lauded for their incredibly heroic work, community mobilizers like Mariam were in the background laboring in the hot zones, changing minds almost one Guinean at a time, all the while exposing themselves to potential infection and violence.
Utilising this style of eating takes the 'diet' out of your personal nutrition, turning it into a healthy (and enjoyable) part of your lifestyle, rather than a restrictive eating pattern you (perhaps) don't enjoy for the majority of the week that ultimately has a finite lifespan.
We're bombarded on social media with organic, seasonal, whole food porn, it does mislead people into a style of eating where they think calories don't matter and then are understandably disheartened when they don't lose weight. Whilst I'm not for a minute saying that the passionate movement away from processed food is not a good thing, there's just more to it than meets the eye.
Depression hit me like a ton of bricks. I wasn't prepared for it. I couldn't handle it and worst of all, I didn't even know what it was. Speaking to quite a few other people my age years later, they now admit that they suffered with depression or anxiety after they left university, but most of them didn't even know it at the time.
We will need to finally figure out the anatomy of the breast ducts and develop reliable ways to image and monitor them -- which is something Dr. Susan Love Research Foundation is committed to doing. If DCIS is really just like rust in the pipes, maybe the next step is to figure out how to squirt something like Drano down the duct and clean them out!
A recent "flare up" of Ebola showed the response system is better -- but not perfect. Vigilance is still needed. And in the long-term, building a resilient health system is crucial. Resilience is a word that is often used post-Ebola.
