Twelve years ago I had become someone I didn’t recognize. After leaving the military I moved to Flagstaff, AZ and I was in party mode. But before long, Mr. Good Time became Mr. Unreliable.
When my roommates staged an intervention (ok, multiple interventions) I knew it was time to get sober. I made an appointment with my therapist, cut out all substances, and started going to Alcoholics Anonymous.
Like many people, I had been told this was the way to sobriety. It’s what our society focuses on:...
Serinna Hardy has been struggling with addressing her son Jaiden’s mental health issues and anger outbursts, and says she cannot find consistent professional mental health support for him.
cosMYC, a company that grew out of research supported by the Dartmouth Innovation Accelerator for Cancer, is working to identify potential new cancer drugs.
Michael D. Cole, Professor of Molecular and Systems Biology at Geisel School of Medicine, and research scientist Ed Feris have worked for years—more than four decades in Cole’s case—to identify a new way to identify cancer drugs that disrupt the MYC oncogene. Now, they’re adjusting to a new role: business leaders who remain active scienti...
Our RV was parked at an alpaca ranch in Montana, and my girls were scaling hay bales and chasing barn cats with two Black sisters from Chicago and a gaggle of Mormon brothers who lived on the farm. This moment — watching my kids explore new cultures, places and experiences — was exactly what I envisioned when, months earlier, I had decided to pack up my family for an open-ended road trip around America.
Economic uncertainty has given investors pause, but there’s still plenty of opportunities to be had, according to a panel at the Dartmouth Entrepreneurs Forum.
Rising interest rates, mass layoffs and a general sense of unease about the health of the economy has caused many investors to tap the brakes on venture capital investing.
But that doesn’t mean that entrepreneurs should be discouraged.
I bought an RV to travel the US with my family during the pandemic, and the whole trip is only costing us a few hundred dollars
My family of four is about 30 days and 3,000 miles into a road trip around the US.
We set out to see the country, without tapping into our savings, and so far we've been able to do that.

The wedding wasn’t entirely unusual. The bride was late, the groom was nervous and the guests were hot, baking beneath the August sun. In front of an arch adorned with cheap paper wedding bells, my father had his hand in his pocket, caressing the two rings that I had bought from a pawn shop the night before.
Over the winter Arti Gaur, PhD, assistant professor of neurology at the Dartmouth Cancer Center and Dartmouth’s Geisel School of Medicine received a call from Sadiq Malik, D ’00. Malik had read about Gaur’s groundbreaking work to develop a treatment for gliomas, a rare form of brain cancer. This science was personal for Malik. His wife had been diagnosed with brain cancer in her 30s and her brother had died from a glioblastoma, a type of tumor that leaves patients with an average life expecta...
“If Schuyler had cancer, I would never think of myself as a failure if I didn’t do chemo in my living room,” Walker says. “I would never think of myself as giving up. This is a brain disorder.”
Jesse Tyler Ferguson didn't think he'd be able to become a dad; now, with 2 sons, he's dedicated to raising 'little feminists'
Jesse Tyler Ferguson, best known for his role on "Modern Family," is now a dad of two.
He says being a dad felt like a "pie in the sky" dream growing up gay.
His husband, Justin Mikita, encouraged Ferguson to consider fatherhood.
When the "Modern Family" star Jesse Tyler Ferguson was growing up, he only hoped to be able to marry the person he loved. For the 47-year-old actor, marriage equality was the big dream and "having a kid was really pie in the sky."
"It did not always feel like an opti...

But maintaining your recovery while taking university classes or living on campus might feel like a whole new challenge. Here’s how to plan for a new chapter of healing and set yourself up for success when you’re in eating disorder reco...
Last year I went on vacation with a family friend. I’m an agnostic at best—I believe our human brains can’t possibly know for sure what high power operates in this universe. My friend couldn’t be more different: she’s a Christian with an intense and personal relationship with God.
The difference in our approaches to faith (or lack thereof) had always existed silently between us, but on the trip we had the chance to truly discuss our beliefs. As we sat in a bubbling hot tub I asked her questio...
Whether you’re a parent living with obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) or you have a child struggling with OCD, navigating life with obsessions (uncontrollable intrusive thoughts) and compulsions (actions taken to mitigate those thoughts) can be challenging. Luckily, there are treatments that can help—and they are available online. Treatment for OCD ofte...
