VIA Mental Floss – Dec 27, 2018 – Beginning in 2019, Americans will no longer need to make 30 phone calls to figure out how much it will cost to deliver a baby or get an X-ray. According to Newsweek, a new federal rule will require hospitals across the country to list their prices…

Retirement from a nearly 40-year career in hospital and healthcare fund-development and community relations in 2010 did not end my association with or concern for that industry. In fact, I often share that I really did not know hospitals until I became (circa 2006) a cancer patient, now about to mark 9 years of continuous remission.

The story NUZZELED at the top of this post archives a universal concern about health care today. The issue is how best to discover the true costs, aka pricing, of hospital services, procedures, and products?

Despite the new Federal law requiring hospitals to be more transparent about pricing, we are reminded that the actual cost for any given test, procedure, or diagnostic may vary depending on the patient’s specific health insurance or Medicare plan. According to the source, “some nonprofit hospitals also factor one’s income into the equation when tallying up costs, so that should change the grand total, too. Even if it still requires a little guesswork on your part, this new transparency when it comes to health care costs is a welcome change.”

Futurism – Arra Dianne Hifarva – Jun 10 – We all learned in high school how Watson and Crick pieced together the findings of many scientists to come up with a model of deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA). Information in DNA is stored as code sequences made up of nitrogenous bases. Each cell has…

Physicists Confirm There’s a Second Layer of Information Hidden in Our DNA NUZZEL this SocialCurrentSee

As one who worked for about 40 years in the healthcare community in fund-development (philanthropy and community relations), I often admit that I really got my education in healthcare when I became a cancer patient in 2006.  That story is told in other posts and content that are basically archived in this FLIPBOARD.

But this post is less personal and more of an introduction to discovery about the topic, DNA.  Given that my cancer survival, now almost 13 years post-DX (diagnosis), is largely due to the science of DNA, the topic remains a focus of my attention.

In 1962, long before DNA was of any significant concern to me, Maurice Wilkins, Francis Crick, and James Watson received the Nobel Prize, but it was Rosalind Franklin’s data and photographs of DNA that led to their discovery.

At this LINK, Brenda Maddox tells a powerful story of a remarkably single-minded, forthright, and tempestuous young woman who, at the age of fifteen, decided she was going to be a scientist, but who was airbrushed out of the greatest scientific discovery of the twentieth century.
