The Best Of Our Knowledge #1246

Prisons in the US are booming. We incarcerate a greater percentage of our population than any other nation in the world. And a lot of those inmate are growing older and sicker behind bars. Today on the Best Of Our Knowledge, we’ll hear about a program where prison inmates are being taught to care for their own.

Then we’ll hear about a special day in India set aside to celebrate teachers, find out about the long road back from a traumatic brain injury…and spend an academic minute learning about medical devices that are a smooth as silk.
