Don’t Be Played for a Health Information Fool
April 27, 2016 2:05 PM by ADVANCE Perspectives

Smartphone Blood Testing
April 6, 2016 2:23 PM by ADVANCE Perspectives

Unity Ticket
March 10, 2016 1:59 PM by ADVANCE Perspectives
By Tamer Abouras Unity is an elusive concept and a curious term in how it’s interpreted. While it is rarely substituted for genuine friendship, the context in which it is used definitely matters. A united movement of activists, for instance, is probably Read More...

Interoperability & Learned Skepticism
March 3, 2016 12:56 PM by ADVANCE Perspectives
By Tamer Abouras The term “peer pressure” probably first emerges as a buzzword in early adolescence. Around that time, at perhaps age 11, you’ll recall the barrage of advice from parents, relatives, teachers and the police officers in your D.A.R.E. program Read More...

Putting the ‘Web’ in WebMD
February 25, 2016 2:13 PM by ADVANCE Perspectives
By Tamer Abouras Speaking from my own perspective, it’s incredibly hard to remember what life was like before the internet touched virtually every part of mine. I don’t remember looking at paper maps for directions — or being particularly adroit when Read More...

Fit for Duty
January 28, 2016 2:21 PM by ADVANCE Perspectives

Why Not
January 21, 2016 9:16 AM by ADVANCE Perspectives
By Tamer Abouras One of the clearest differences between humans and animals is our capacity for intellectual inquiry. Your dog may be interested in what’s on your plate, but when you oblige and give him a piece, he’s not going to eat it, sit down and Read More...

The Health Information Food Chain
January 14, 2016 2:01 PM by ADVANCE Perspectives
