Outdoor Idaho  "Eating Local"  Most of our food travels about 1,500 miles before it ever reaches our kitchen tables. But there are a growing number of food producers and consumers who prefer to eat locally grown food; they say it's healthier and tastier. Today, more than 50 farmers markets operate throughout the state, allowing farmers and consumers to meet and learn from each other. It's a trend that harkens back to a simpler time, when communities supported local farmers and people knew where their food came from. Outdoor Idaho explores the growing fascination with eating local.G

Crisis In Caring: California's School Nursing Shortage   If your child becomes sick or injured at school, legally there might be no one who can help them.

Throughout, doctors from several Pittsburgh-area hospitals stress the importance of communication regarding end-of-life decision-making. These difficult, but necessary conversations can help patients navigate - and even dictate - their end-of-life scenarios. D
