The excitement I now see on my students' faces -- and their obvious pleasure when their proposals get taken seriously by the community members reviewing their work -- makes it hard for me to imagine ever going back to the old ways of teaching.
Making sense out of all the health data out there is daunting -- even for the seasoned health data junkie. A new app for the iPad called Health Indicators now brings consumers one step closer to seeing health data about where they live using a "geomedicine" approach.
The US government pays one group of people to help convince people to switch to growing legal crops, and then while paying another group of people to kill illegal crops, they accidentally kill the legal plantings.
You probably have your own stories about geomedicine -- unusual health symptoms that can't be explained, cancers that run in certain families or communities that don't have a genetic or lifestyle link.
