Read letters from our June issue

"Sex Matters," May I thoroughly enjoyed Jen McCaffery’s article about Dr. Alyson McGregor's research exposing how women's physiology cannot be truly understood from studies only done with men. She is helping to correct a bias in past research. Ironically, the sexist presentation of her as a person was alarming and possibly insulting. By the final photo, I felt like I…

Full-Grown Fitness I am writing on behalf of Unleashed in regards to the recent Best of Rhode Island Awards . As loyal readers and active members of the community, we were very honored to be recognized for our facility.
