Size tap targets appropriately

Some of the links/buttons on your webpage may be too small for a user to easily tap on a touchscreen. Consider making these tap targets larger to provide a better user experience.
The following tap targets are close to other nearby tap targets and may need additional spacing around them.
The tap target <button class="pillow-btn-hea…-btn-processed">Search</button> is close to 1 other tap targets.
The tap target <a href="http://www.spr…com/behavioral">Behavioral Sciences</a> and 25 others are close to other tap targets.
The tap target <a href="http://www.spr…com/behavioral">Behavioral Sciences</a> and 9 others are close to other tap targets.
