Health Wonk Review for September 14, 2017

The Neverending Summer of Healthcare Legislation Edition

Whoops. Did you think that the never-ending battle over Obamacare was finally … um … ending? Wrong-o. As Louise Norris hints with the theme of the latest edition of Health Wonk Review, there’s still apparently plenty of time for debate on healthcare.

There’s a little bit of that debate in this week’s edition of Health Wonk Review, but also, it’s a mixed bag: there’s a post about how the relentless attacks on Obamacare may ultimately deliver Single Payer and another post about why children’s health premiums are going up in 2018.

But there are also a whole bunch of other great posts not related to health reform at all: a look at the perils of working as a nurse; a post about possible approaches to reducing opioid abuse and a shocking article about the resurgence of hookworm.

It’s a great collection of posts (so go read it).

Next up: Brad Wright hosts Health Wonk Review on September 28.
