    Penn study finds most black men with trauma aren't getting treatment
    During a typical visit to the emergency room, most patients encounter doctors who will do everything they can to address physical symptoms as quickly as possible. But gunshot wounds and other injuries often come with psychological health issues, too, such as anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder, or anger that's hard to manage.

While hands-on experience with a pencil, brush, or instrument is important, it's more likely that children will have a smartphone or tablet in their hands. In their spare time-instead of watching YouTube videos or Snapchating-let them experiment with these apps for art, drawing, and coding.
