    At the growing number of hospitals that are certified as “baby-friendly,” the naked, often unbathed infant is put on the mother's bare chest within the first hour of birth.

  • Influenza 1918-19: Fear and courage in another outbreak Oct 26, 2014 7:00 AM
    Vastly larger and deadlier than the current Ebola outbreak, the great influenza pandemic of 1918 and 1919 killed an estimated 50 million people worldwide and more than half a million in the United States. It is considered among the worst epidemics in human history. But its appearance almost a century ago bore similarities to today, and engendered the same kind of fear, courage and tragedy that comes with the spread of a terrifying illness.

  • High-tech tracker: Will it get you walking? Oct 25, 2014 7:00 AM
    Tracking steps is nothing new: For years, public health experts have promoted pedometers as a tool to encourage people to become more active. Those old-style devices, which clip on the waistband and count steps, are cheap and simple, but they lack the bells and whistles found on such high-tech trackers as Fitbit, Jawbone Up, the Withings Pulse Ox and Misfit Shine, which synch your data to your smartphone or computer and allow you to keep detailed records, set goals and share and compare your data with friends.
