How do doctors determine the severity of a brain injury?

Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) can result in a wide variety of symptoms. Because the brain is such a complex organ, each TBI can be considered a unique injury. If you have a loved one who recently received a TBI, the unique nature of the injury can make it difficult to predict what lasting symptoms your loved one may experience, what treatments he or she might benefit from and what abilities he or she may recover in time.

Summer is a time when many high school and college students serve in internships to gain valuable real world experience. Some work in various branches of government -- particularly at the federal and state level.

On-the-job auto crashes put many workers' health at risk

The modern job market is increasingly asking workers to travel. It may be the core component of the job, like a delivery driver for an online retailer. Or it might be a small - but necessary - piece, such as a nursing assistant traveling to patients’ homes. The demand that workers hit the road in order to do their job is widespread.
