And in other news…
since I previously suggested an article about states not setting up insurance exchanges, check out this NYTimes article about doctors who only take cash. Concierge medicine is a model worth knowing; it may be an important part of healthcare in the future.

Dear members of the Columbia University American Medical Student Association,
I work at EcoHealth Alliance, an NYC-based non-profit, where our programs are focused on solving issues at the forefront of conservation, environmental, and human health. I’m emailing you today because I believe you might be interested in attending a free networking event we are hosting at our offices on Thursday November 29th.
This is an ideal networking event for young professionals interested in entering the fields of conservation, environmental health, or public health, as EcoHealth Alliance’s programs focus on issues at the intersection of all three pillars. Our scientists and public health experts will be there that night to talk with you about the the different aspects of our work— we do everything from sampling for disease in the field, to working with government ministers around the world to impact public health and conservation policy.
I’ve attached the invitation, but you can also click here
