NEW RESEARCH: A Samoan infant rests in a special scanner that measures body composition. It is the first such scanner installed in a Pacific Island nation. In the Samoan language, “olaga” means life — which makes it a perfect acronym for a unique new research laboratory opened by Brown University and Yale University scientists at the Samoa's Ministry of Health on Friday, Nov. 10.
