Flu Shots Better Than FluMist
John Treanor, professor of medicine, comments on a new study comparing
the effectiveness of FluMist with conventional flu shots: "This
study suggests that maybe it doesn't really offer any specific benefit
beyond what you would get from just a regular flu shot, and under certain
circumstances, it may not be quite as good." (Also reported by
Sun Times, Boston
Globe, and others.)

College, You Can Go Home Again and Again
"The empty nest isn’t what it used to be or what many parents
expected it would be when they left their children at college, driving
away while trying to stifle their sobs. With religious and national
holidays, family celebrations and the October break, many college student—or
at least those within several hours of their old bedrooms—seem
to be home almost as much as they’re away."
