On The Record

  • Manhattan Institute report by Paul Howard ‘Building a Market Based Health Insurance Exchange in N.Y.’
  • Center for Budget & Policy Priorities report on Tax Reform provisions passed by the House, and their claim that they are being used to finance high income tax cuts instead of deficit reduction
  • NIH has launched a website with resources for complementary and alternative medicine
  • National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization (NHPCO) national hospice dataset has May 1, 2011 deadline for data reports; further links to this database/data products of NHPCO are embedded
  • Interesting study of 54 nations that suggests that height on women in 14 African countries is declining, possibly due to poor nutrition and/or access to health care
