    One Health: From AIDS to Zika, Just In Time for One Health Day

    Posted by Katie Hennessy on Oct 4, 2016 3:48:29 PM

    By Richard Riegelman MD, MPH, PhD, Professor and Founding Dean, Milken Institute School of Public Health, The George Washington University

    As Zika spreads to the U.S., climate change becomes a daily reality, and the presence of antibiotic resistance becomes a threat to human health, the One Health movement has emerged to help us understand how it all fits together. One Health looks at the relationship between human, animal, and ecosystem health and offers the potential for dramatic progress if the health professions work together to address these issues.

    Wanted: Public Health Workers!

    Posted by Katie Hennessy on Aug 17, 2016 3:02:52 PM

    Much has been written in the popular press about the looming shortage of physicians, nurses, and allied health professionals (Corwin, 2015; Grant, 2016; Mishoe, 2004). Comparatively little ink, however, has been used to discuss the looming shortage of public health workers. Why? I would venture to guess that much like housework and lawn mowing, unless it is not done, few note when it is done. The workers, like the labor involved, are invisible—until there is a disaster or the mess is on the Mayor’s front porch, as it was in the nine-day long New York City garbage strike of 1968 and the seventeen-day long strike of 1981.

    Richard Skolnik – Author of Global Health 101, Third Edition

    In April 2016, Unite for Sight asked me to facilitate a workshop on teaching global health at its annual Global Health and Innovation Conference. This followed a similar workshop I led in April 2014.

    The aims of the 90-minute workshop were to exchange ideas about:

    • How teachers and students might keep up to date in such a rapidly changing field
    • Some of the key value and content issues in teaching global health
    • How participants might get better access to selected global health “experts”

    Jones & Bartlett Learning Author and Health Policy and Law Expert Joel Teitelbaum Weighs in on the Latest Affordable Care Act Litigation

    Posted by Katie Hennessy on Jul 21, 2016 11:49:31 AM

    More than six years after becoming law, the Affordable Care Act (ACA) remains heavily litigated.  Since 2010, dozens of lawsuits have been lodged against it, with four of them reaching the United States Supreme Court – a remarkable number given the law’s relatively short lifespan and the fact that the Court only grants approximately 80 of the 8,000 case petitions it receives each year.  ACA litigation continued apace over the past year, with two new important decisions handed down in May of 2016.
