Living a full life with epilepsy

Marcelo Lancman, M.D., offers his knowledge and experience with epilepsy in What You Need to Know if Epilepsy Has Touched Your Life: A Guide in Plain English (ISBN 1475105312). Written for those living with epilepsy as well as their family members, friends and caregivers, Lancman's work acts as a guide and resource for this common brain disorder.

Sleeping Bootie

A baby bootie that could help prevent sudden infant death syndrome won Jacob Colvin the title of BYU Student Innovator of the Year. The boot monitors a sleeping infant's heart rate and blood oxygen. See the boot in this video.

Study explores "midlevel providers" for dental care
