Tuesday's Tidbits

Today's highlight is this piece about Dr. Abraham Verghese, who teaches students to look, feel, listen -- the lost art of the physical exam.

A new antibiotic-resistant bug found in India -- sounds scary, especially for those of us with suppressed immune systems.

Premiums and other out-of-pocket expenses will increase in 2011. When will the insurers start working with us to control costs? And don't let anybody tell you it's because of health reform. Large group plans that don't change dramatically aren't subject to most of the law's new provisions, so they're raising prices for the same reason they've done so over the past few years.

The first stem cell treatment is underway. If this works, it will revolutionize medicine.

Doctors learn it may be about more than medicine in this program to teach urban medicine.

Politico explains the role of state races on health care -- it's not all about repeal in Congress. It may also be about implementation on the state level.

An interesting crop today -- enjoy! Jennifer
