Friday, June 17, 2011
Unfortunately, our Friday is bittersweet this week with the departure of our newest blogger, Molly Maguire. Molly finishes her internship today and is moving on to a position as an associate at Lewis-Burke Associates, LLC. We are sad to see her go, but excited for her new adventures and looking forward to hearing about her work there soon.
In that spirit of new adventures, two federal agencies have made major announcements this week:
The FDA releases the new sunscreen guidelines in time for another fun-in-the-sun summer. Looking for some good beach reading? Seems like neuroscience and brain books are the page-turners for 2011.
USDA releases new food guidelines, explicitly encouraging Americans to eat more fruits, vegetables and whole grains. While raw fruits and veggies are predictable, it turns out figuring out what really has whole grains can be a bit trickier.
On this day in New Voices:
2010 - We launched our summer series, Images from Around the Lab. If you'd like to contribute pictures from your lab, drop us a line in the comments or via email at programs_at_researchamerica.org.
2009 - New Voices Matt, Takao and Rashada participated in the first blog point/counterpoint on policy related to Combating Cancer.
