re: 12 Top Health Apps From Uncle Sam
It's great to see the government taking the initative to move healthcare into the 21st century. I especially like the PTSD coach for veterans. There seems to be nothing more intuitive and easy than having apps that help people manage their health & chronic diseases. Now we just need to get the public downloading them!
