Thursday Round-Up

Max is back from Boston, and we're sharing the round-up today to give him a bit more time to write up his experience at the One Mind conference (look for that tomorrow). So, without further ado, here are our highlights from around the web.

Stand up for Research
Jessica Alba was on Capitol Hill this week advocating for safer chemicals. To learn more about how chemicals in products relate to your health research, check out Sarah's series on chemical exposure and public health.

Anyone who's ever tried to explain how research on the genome can improve your health, knows that skeptics can be hard to convince, but this story about how taking an at home DNA test changed a woman's life might bolster your next discussion.

Celebrating the awesome.
New Voices own Christian Torres had his first piece published in the Washington Post this week! Congratulations Christian.
