Today's Globe: Child psychiatrist in spotlight, concussions, alternative medicine books, blind children in India, Crohn's treatments
The death of a 4-year-old Hull girl has put Dr. Kayoko Kifuji, a Tufts-New England Medical Center psychiatrist who treated the girl, at the center of controversy.
The repeat concussions suffered by former New England Patriots linebacker Ted Johnson have brought new attention to concussions in sports. Writer Joseph Williams, himself a former football player, writes that the culture of athletics and human nature are the largest hurdles to preventing head injuries.
Also in today's Health/Science section: Columnist Judy Foreman recommends her favorite books about alternative medicine; MIT neuroscientist Pawan Sinha says his research on congenital cataracts in India suggests that sight can be restored in older children thought permanently blind; and a profile of Dr. Paul K. Kleinman, a Children's Hospital Boston pediatric radiologist who had done pioneering work on identifying victims of child abuse.
In Business & Innovation: two treatments for Crohn's disease are expected to get FDA approval this year.
