GOOD GRIEF | Barry Kibrick — Grief is something none of us can escape yet the topic is rarely discussed because there is no one way we all experience it. Knowing how difficult the subject is on the faculty of Ron Marasco Loyola Marymount University, began teaching a course on grief and his book,Grief , grew out of his lectures and research.

Bienvenue to the French Riviera — I've left Italy and have arrived in the South of France. I'm looking forward to a couple of weeks of beaches, hill towns, and great meals. The French Riviera has amazing scenery. From the beautiful (but grotesquely touristy) mountaintop village of Eze, you can look down on Cap Ferrat.

How Hawaii Became One Of The Healthiest States In The Nation — Hawaii isn't just a nice state for a vacation. It may also be the healthiest state in which to live, at least according to one metric: Only 19 percent of Hawaiian residents suffer from obesity. That's the lowest of any state, according to the Gallup-Healthways Well-Being Index released this week.

Take Care: There's More to Medical Ethics Than Absence of Harm — Ultimately it comes down to a doctor or other practitioner standing with a patient, making decisions that are very personal.

Inside Huntington's — My first year out of college, I worked as a lab technician in a neurobiology lab at Massachusetts General Hospital East researching drug addiction. I was 22 years old in February 1993 when the scientists down the hall began celebrating, puncturing the typically austere bubble of this neuroscience research floor with big emotion.

Life With HD and a Dog Named Flo — After noticing some unusual mental and physical behavior, appointments with and tests by a neurologist, we got the startling diagnosis of Huntington's Disease (HD) in March 2010. It was an unwelcome surprise, as we were not aware that this genetic brain disease was in her father's family.

The Note of Hope: Woody Guthrie Center Partners for Huntington's Awareness — The Woody Guthrie Center is, at its core, an educational facility, so when we were approached about screening The Lion's Mouth Opens in our theater, we were thrilled with the opportunity. This documentary not only follows one person's journey, it also raises awareness of Huntington's Disease, which will hopefully result in additional research for a cure.
