Health News of the Day

Health News of the Day is a daily summary made from the selected links I post on Twitter. It is in a bullet points format with links to the original sources which include 350 RSS feeds that produce about 2,500 items per day.

  • NEJM: The Proposed Government Health Insurance Company — No Substitute for Real Reform, would be more successful in forcing lower reimbursement rates on physicians and hospitals http://bit.ly/loR6D

  • NEJM: Handguns, Health, and the 27 words of the Second Amendment http://bit.ly/rubSm

  • Somehow, the NEJM's use of the terms "younger old persons" and "older old persons" doesn't sound quite right... http://bit.ly/k8yW0
