America's opioid crisis is hitting Pennsylvania's roadways, according to a new study published in JAMA Network Open.

The study was released in mid-February.

What teens should know about distracted driving

Distracted driving can be a problem for drivers in Pennsylvania and throughout the country regardless of the driver's age. However, statistics show that it is a major problem for teen drivers.

Study finds factors for misdiagnosis of optical tumors

Optic nerve sheath meningiomas, or ONSM, are a rare type of tumor that develops around the optic nerve.

The tumors can be difficult to treat as they are often initially misdiagnosed until loss of vision has occurred.
