Just the two of us: Holding Hands Can Ease Pain and Sync Brainwaves.

And the more those brain waves sync, the more the pain goes away.”We have developed a lot of ways to communicate in the modern world and we have fewer physical interactions,” said lead author Pavel Goldstein, a postdoctoral pain researcher in the Cognitive and Affective […]

Jeffco’s SNAP Program Promotes Healthy Eating.

(Wheat Ridge, Colorado): If you had the choice between buying a fruit or vegetable from your local, neighborhood farmer or from halfway across the country, which would you choose?
