News To Know: A Year In Health News

Over the weekend, USA Today gave AARP President Jennie Chin Hansen the chance to highlight some of this year's most interesting and important health news and research. In her Special Report on Health, she references research on preventing medication mix-ups, using space technology to improve balance and prevent falls in older Americans, the ability of exercise to slow the aging process, and even how internet games can help sharpen the mind. With so many depressing stories in the news, it's nice to see a year's worth of health news on ways to live better and longer.
