Headlines: September 28, 2009

Happy Monday morning to you all! Today we have quite a grab-bag of links for you on host of different topics…
First up is an interesting piece from an economics blog on why health care reform is a really a “woman’s issue.”
Here is an article examining the big-picture political situation and reform, which in particular looks at the relationship between Democratic majority leader Harry Reid and President Obama. Both will have to work together effectively, the article argues, to get a compromise bill through Congress.
From the L.A. Times health care blog is this interesting argument about young adults and health care, and why this statistical group tends to ignore treatment and regular doctors visits.
Finally, from the always-fascinating Atlantic Magazine is this feature, a passionate plea to fundamentally change health care in America by a man who recently lost a loved one after the patient contracted an infection in the hospital.
As always, I also want to remind readers that I am always looking for interesting headlines related to Law, Medicine, and Ethics. If you have a tip, please feel free to leave it in the comment section or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Hope you all have a good day!
