Scientists Identify ‘Youth Factor’ in Blood Cells That Speeds Fracture Repair

Duke Health

Seniors are Drinking More, Not Less, in their Twilight Years

Just as the population of older adults is increasing worldwide, so too is the number of older adults who consume alcohol.

This study looked at how at-risk drinking among older adults changes over time.
