Five on Friday | July 15, 2016
Happy Friday to you! We’ve got the top five recommended reads from Migrant Clinicians Network staff, to send you off happily into your weekend.
- Karen, Chief Executive Officer, enjoyed Texas Monthly’s interview of Clay Johnson, MD, the Dean of UT-Austin’s brand-new Dell Medical School. The wide-ranging interview touches on disparities in health access in Austin: “How do we produce the models that value the impact that one can have in that population as much as in an insured population? To us, fundamentally, that is a much more important problem and one that we are trying to position ourselves to address.”
- Candace, Specialist in Clinical Systems and Women’s Health, shared Merritt Hawkins 2016 FQHC Pro Bono Physician Search Application: “Through our Pro Bono Physician Search initiative, Merritt Hawkins provides a full service physician recruitment program to an understaffed FQHC, waiving our customary retainer and fees.”
- Theressa, Training and Technical Assistance Coordinator, recommends this new resource: 1999–2013 Cancer Incidence and Mortality Data.
- Leslie, Health Network Associate, suggests this 2015 report on whether Austin is really “family-friendly,” from Mama Sana/Vibrant Woman, an organization that recently joined forces with Leslie to come out to the Ventanilla de Salud monthly health fair at the Mexican Consulate in Austin, TX.
- Claire, Writer and Editor, noticed MCN’s mention in this article on Ventanilla de Salud and MCN’s new partnership with the American Cancer Society aiming to reduce cancer among Mexican nationals living in the US.
Have a safe and healthy weekend!
