Retail Medicine Takes Hold

The lane for healthcare is widening. Well-capitalized retail and technology companies are pushing services out of the clinic and into big-box stores, corner shops, and private homes. While they are out purchasing computers and clothing, shoppers can also schedule their check-ups, dental care, mental health counseling, and X-rays. Meanwhile, tech companies are reaching clients where they live, offe...

PhRMA Presents: Realizing the Promise of Health for All

America’s robust biomedical ecosystem and the therapeutic advances it has introduced are making remarkable progress against cancer, heart disease, stroke, and other serious illnesses. But much more needs to be done to ensure that all communities can access the treatments and care they need. Prohibitive costs, ingrained biases, healthcare deserts, and distrust in the medical system born of past abu...

Why Work in Healthcare?

Schools of nursing, medicine, and public health are attracting applicants in record numbers and admiration for these professionals has never been higher. At the same time, many workers—burned out, burdened by debt, and facing mental health challenges—are fleeing the field. Given the appeal, the stress, and the vital nature of healthcare jobs, we need to understand how best to recruit, motivate, an...

Supporting Parents, Nurturing Kids

Being a parent is more challenging than ever. Workplace demands, the shortage of affordable daycare and paid leave policies, and the complexities of social media all put enormous strains on families. Yet parents have been left largely on their own to navigate the systems and build the structures their children need to thrive and often feel isolated and exhausted. Given the role that early childhoo...

Countering Racial Bias with Empathy

No doctor awakens in the morning determined to discriminate against patients of color, yet their daily clinical decisions too often have that result. Implicit bias—unconscious assumptions and stereotypes—often cause the harm. The failure to ask the right questions, listen closely and reserve judgment can sabotage communication in any patient/physician encounter, but it worsens when racial differen...

Finding Healthcare at Your Laundromat, Grocery Store, or Barber Shop

In some communities, the laundromat has become a place to get a mammogram, a blood test, or a skin cancer screening. Mental health counseling is being offered at churches, health insurance sign-ups are taking place in libraries and parks, and barbers are raising awareness of hypertension and the risk of colorectal cancer as they snip and shave. When the doctor’s office is an intimidating space or...

Abbott Presents: Tech for the Many, Not the Few

In the face of the pandemic, technology became an important part of how we accessed care almost overnight. Suddenly, physician video consults became standard practice, tests and devices were routinely used to diagnose and monitor disease at home, and new software was connecting people with the information they needed from the convenience of their phones or tablets.

Reducing Food Waste and Feeding the Hungry

Almost 110 billion pounds of food, roughly 40% of the nation’s total food supply, go to waste in the United States every year, yet more than 38 million Americans lack reliable access to affordable, nutritious meals. Can we create a win-win-win that bridges the gap between waste and hunger while supporting struggling local restaurants that are often community mainstays? Rethink Food is proving that...
