In A Self-Care Revolution, the idea of taking care of yourself is turned on its head. I argue that self-care should be seen as an act of revolution, not an act of selfishness. Revolution is defined as a fundamental change in power. I argue that the ways we take care of and discover ourselves are key to taking power over our sense of “self” away from others, away from institutions, and claiming power for and within ourselves. In discussing specific ways to help us understand the idea of “self-care as revolutionary,” I cover three main practices in self-care: self-talk, rituals, and optimism and look at the ways we can implement self-care into our education systems.

In which John Green teaches you about various reform movements in the 19th century United States. From Utopian societies to the Second Great Awakening to the Abolition movement, American society was undergoing great changes in the first half of the 19th century. Attempts at idealized societies popped up (and universally failed) at Utopia, OH, New Harmony, IN, Modern Times, NY, and many other places around the country. These utopians had a problem with mainstream society, and their answer was to withdraw into their own little worlds. Others didn't like the society they saw, and decided to try to change it. Relatively new protestant denominations like the Methodists and Baptists reached out to "the unchurched" during the Second Great Awakening, and membership in evangelical sects of Christianity rose quickly. At the same time, Abolitionist societies were trying to free the slaves. Americans of the 19th century had looked at the world they were living in, and decided to change it.

Health care and political systems are deeply intertwined, with implications for the quality and equality of access to health care. This symposium explores the political dynamics of health care laws and the way they affect people not only as patients but also as citizens. Health professionals, policy and public health experts, economists, sociologists, and political scientists draw on comparative politics and policies of the states—alone and as part of a federalist system—and on international perspectives to explore the relationships between citizens and their health care.

Recorded December 11, 2012 Historically, nonprofit organizations offering health insurance coverage to their employees have adopted a number of strategies intended to control the ever-increasing cost of health care, including self-insuring their own employees' health risks, implementing wellness programs, and shifting more and more costs onto their employees. In the wake of the enactment of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act ("PPACA"), nonprofits -- like virtually all employers -- are examining a number of new strategies to control health insurance costs. Some of these strategies are grounded in the concept of a "health insurance exchange" or some type of retail marketplace intended to facilitate the purchase of health insurance. One strategy leverages the private marketplace through a "private" health insurance exchange and adopts a defined contribution model to fund the purchase of a health plan. Another strategy leverages the new state-based exchanges (or federally-facilitated exchange, as the case may be) that are being created under the PPACA. Listen in to learn about the various private exchange models that operate in the current marketplace and explore the features that make a private exchange an attractive option. In addition, we will discuss how the new state-based exchanges and the federally-facilitated exchange will work, and how these new entities will interact with large and small employers alike.

April 14, 2011 Marian Mulkey focused her remarks on present day health care costs and coverage, public and private coverage expansion and related changes in benefits, and access to care in the ACA and provided an update on implementation activities in California in these areas. The Affordable Care Act (ACA), passed into law just over a year ago, identified significant responsibilities for both the federal government and the states prior to full implementation in 2014. The ACA includes many short-term changes intended to expand and improve health insurance, including new consumer protections for people with private coverage; tax credits for small, low-wage businesses; and a new program that allows those with preexisting conditions to purchase health insurance. At the same time, investments are being made to strengthen prevention and public health and support community clinics. In the longer term, broad expansion of enrollment in both private health insurance plans and public programs is anticipated. This CHCF Sacramento briefing provided a basic overview of the ACA and its impact on California as the state implements health reform. This briefing is intended for those not closely following the ins and outs of the ACA or implementation activities in California. Presenters discussed the creation and operation of the California Health Benefit Exchange; opportunities and challenges for Medi-Cal as it moves to accommodate an expanded patient population; provisions of the ACA intended to shore up the health care workforce to meet the increased demand for health services under health reform; opportunities to advance prevention and wellness; and ways to support seniors in the community under the framework of the Community Living Assistance Services and Supports program (CLASS Act), part of the ACA designed to expand options for people who become disabled and require long-term aid.

Multilevel Interventions in Health Care: Building the Foundation for Future Research Goals Healthcare Reform and Multilevel Interventions and Research: Big Changes Go Hand in Hand with Big Science Lead author: Kelly Devers, PhD (Urban Institute) The purpose of this paper is to describe and discuss the implications of the Affordable Care Act, and other major pieces of legislation passed in 2009, for cancer care and related research. Continuing with these major areas and provisions, we illustrate and discuss how the implementation of these reforms occurs at multiple levels of the health system. General concepts must be translated into specific and often-complex, multilevel interventions that often vary based on states and local markets prior history, interpretation, and current capacities and constraints. Recommendations will be presented for how best to develop this multilevel infrastructure to ensure that the Big Changes underway are accompanied by a new, health services research Big Science approach. Conference Description The research conference sponsored by the National Cancer Institute assembled health care researchers, clinicians, and administrators to discuss the importance of multilevel approaches to improving health care quality in the United States. It occurred over two days and was associated with the American Society for Preventive Oncology's (ASPO) annual meeting in March of 2011. This presentation is one of 13 research papers. The conference offered platforms for participant discussion and engagement regarding the opportunities and challenges of multilevel intervention research.

Altarum Institute Center for Sustainable Health Spending and the Peter G Peterson Foundation present a Research Strategy Meeting: Building a Research Agenda to Support Sustainable Health Spending, June 6, 2011, Pew Charitable Trusts, Washington, DC. America's current fiscal path has become a matter of intense scrutiny within the government policy making, academic research, business, and philanthropic communities. Health care, particularly the Medicare program, is the principal source of projected future budget deficits. Moving toward a sustainable system will be a major goal for many years, regardless of the fate of the Affordable Care Act. This meeting explored paths to health care cost control, i.e., "bending the curve," without sacrificing quality or access, and served as a kick-off event to a new five-year, Altarum Institute initiative: the Center for Sustainable Health Spending "Critical Systems Issue." Harvard's Michael Chernew chaired the meeting which included presentations by Mark McClellan (Engelberg Center for Health Reform), Paul Ginsburg (Center for Studying Health System Change), Henry Aaron (Brookings Institution), Bob Kocher (McKinsey & Company, Inc.), Michael Chernew, and Jeff Lemieux (America's Health Insurance Plans). An invited group of distinguished experts provided critical analysis of the presentations, commented on the larger issues of health care cost control, and suggested promising avenues for future research.

United States Pension Benefit Plan Design Innovation: Labor Unions as Agents of Change Author: David Blitzstein Abstract: Labor unions played an historic role creating the occupational pension system in the private and public sectors in the post-World War II era. That system, which was dominated by defined benefit pension plans, is in decline. The transition to a new system is economically and socially painful, and has been accelerated by two financial crises in the past decade. This paper uses a case study of a private sector union to demonstrate how labor unions can influence the renegotiation of the pension contract for American workers. The case study describes how one union evaluated the pension crisis from a sustainability viewpoint, and responded pro-actively by developing a hybrid pension plan that attempted to align the interests of all stakeholders through equitable risk sharing. The hybrid plan developed by this union eventually had a broader influence on the pension community at large and the public policy debate around the pension crisis.

Epidemics in Western Society Since 1600 (HIST 234) The sanitary movement was an approach to public health first developed in England in the 1830s and '40s. With increasing industrialization and urbanization, the removal of filth from towns and cities became a major focus in the struggle against infectious diseases. As pioneered by Edwin Chadwick, the sanitary movement also embraced an explicit political objective, according to which urban cleansing took on a figurative as well as a literal sense, and was seen as a potential solution to the threat posed by the "dangerous classes." European cities followed suit, with Paris and Naples embarking on wholesale rebuilding projects, necessitating large-scale state intervention. Although these technological reforms marked an undeniable step forward for public health, they often also entailed the exclusion of other strategies, such as progressive economic and educational reforms. 00:00 - Chapter 1.

On a 35 to 31 vote, the Minnesota Senate gave its final approval to SF 1, the proposed 2017 Health Care Emergency Aid and Access Act. The measure, sponsored by Senator Michelle Benson, R-Ham Lake, would provide health insurance premium relief to individuals facing rising costs and ineligible for federal assistance. The bill also establishes several reform measures. The plan would cost about $300 million dollars. For the first three months, all individuals would qualify for a 25 percent premium reduction. For the remainder of 2017, individuals earning less than $95,040 and families with household incomes below $194,400 would continue receiving a discounted premium based upon their income. . The measure also designates funds to allow patients engaged in treatment to continue receiving their same care. Other reform efforts would allow for-profit HMO's to enter the individual market and ease ways for small businesses to offer affordable insurance plans. Senate DFL members argued that action on health care reform measures should occur independently of the premium rebate plan. They defended Governor Dayton's position that the Republican plan would be costly to administer and would delay reductions for several months. Republican legislators, including Benson, said that the state should not spend $300 million dollars without enacting reform measures. The bill was sent to the House of Representatives.

The conference of "Quality in Health Care" with the theme of "Achieving Quality in Health Care Services and Outcomes" deals with quality in health care; more specifically the role of quality in the enhancement of care for patients, the improvement of patient safety and satisfaction, and organizational efficiency. Improving the quality of health care services and outcomes is a subject of major interest to regional governments, the public, and to the global community. Recent statistics on the quality of health care in the United States published by the "Remaking American Medicine" (http://www.ramcampaign.org/pages/quality_stats.htm) reveal the following striking findings: - Medical errors kill more people per year than breast cancer, AIDS or road traffic injuries; - Doctors provide appropriate preventive care only 50% of the time, effective chronic care 60% of the time, and evidence-based acute care only 70% of the time; - Nearly $400 billion - almost one-third of the total spent on health care each year - is wasted on poor quality health care. In Kuwait's national midrange plan 2010-2014 and Tony Blair's Kuwait Vision 2030s report, evidence abounds for the need to improve the quality of health care: - Increase in the number of Kuwaiti nationals seeking medical care abroad; - The need for improving the quality of health care services; - The need to focus on public health, preventive care, and the improvement of healthy lifestyle habits to avert serious illnesses; - Kuwait lags international standards on the management of obesity and chronic diseases. Kuwait and the Gulf in general have launched plans and initiatives to improve the quality of health care services and outcome; especially in public hospitals and clinics. These have focused on engaging the private sector. Through the sessions of the Conference, we seek to find answers to the following questions: 1.How can the quality concepts, models, and programs used to improve the quality of health care? 2.What kind of metrics should be used to assess the quality in health care? 3.How can patient experience and engagement be attained and measured? 4.Has the private sector experienced true improvements in all aspects of quality and safety? 5.How may the interest of patients be protected against the disequilibrium of information and knowledge between the service provider and customer? Can quality concepts and tools help? 6.Does the concept of quality have the same meaning in public and private institutions? 7.What are the challenges facing public providers in their quest to improve health care quality? How may these challenges be addressed in practical terms? 8.What is the role of accreditation in improving quality of health care? How can the interest of the patient be protected against the business nature of the relationship between accreditation bodies and service providers? Whatever role you assume in the health care sector, we hope that your participation enriches your experience and that of others; providing you with answers to some of your questions and, most importantly, allowing all attendees to be exposed to different perspectives on the concept and application of quality in health care. We look forward to your active participation in the conference of "Quality in Health Care - Achieving Quality in Health Care Services and Outcomes."

Electronic health records (EHRs) allow for the systematic collection and management of patient health information in a form that can be shared across multiple health care settings. By providing easier access to patients' medical records, EHRs can help improve healthcare quality, efficiency, and safety. But despite these advantages, the expense of system implementation has slowed EHR adoption rates, even though they have the potential to significantly reduce health care expenses over time. This session of Public Health Grand Rounds will explore the issues of EHR implementation with particular attention to public and population health while addressing concerns of cost, patient confidentiality, and other challenges.

For Students: http://l.prageru.com/29SgPaX JOIN our Educators Network! http://l.prageru.com/2c8vsff Script: If every high school principal gave the following speech, America would be a much better place. To the students and faculty of our high school: I am your new principal, and honored to be so. There is no greater calling than to teach young people. I would like to apprise you of some important changes coming to our school. First, this school will no longer honor race or ethnicity. I could not care less if you are black, brown, red, yellow or white. I could not care less if your origins are African, European, Latin American or Asian, or if your ancestors arrived here on the Mayflower or on slave ships. The only identity this school will recognize is your individual identity—your character, your scholarship, your humanity. And the only national identity this school will recognize is American. This is an American public school, and American public schools were created to make better Americans. If you wish to affirm here an ethnic or racial identity—or a national identity other than American —you will have to attend another school. This includes after-school clubs. I will not authorize clubs that divide students based on identities such as race, ethnicity, sexual orientation or whatever else may become in vogue in our society. Those clubs cultivate narcissism—an unhealthy preoccupation with the self—while the purpose of education is to get you to think beyond yourself. This school’s clubs will be based on interests and passions—clubs that transport you to the wonders and glories of art, music, astronomy, languages you do not already speak, and more. If the only extracurricular activities you can imagine being interested in are those based on ethnicity, race or sexual identity, that means that little outside of yourself really interests you. Second, I do not care whether English is your native language. My only interest in terms of language is that you leave this school speaking and writing English as fluently as possible. The English language has united America’s citizens for over 200 years, and it will unite us at this school. Furthermore, I would be remiss in my duty to ensure that you will be prepared to successfully compete in the job market, if you leave this school without excellent English-language skills. We will learn other languages here—it’s deplorable that most Americans only speak English—but if you want classes taught in your native language rather than in English, this is not the right school for you. Third, because I regard learning as a sacred endeavor, everything in this school will reflect learning’s elevated status. This means, among other things, that you and your teachers will dress accordingly. There will be a dress code at this school. And you will address all teachers by their title, not by their first name. They are your teachers, not your pals.

The State Government Finance Committee approved the omnibus pension bill Wednesday, May 10, that is intended to sustain the health of the pension funds into the future by increasing employees and employers contributions and lowering the annual cost-of-living adjustments. "I think this reform came about, because we had these funds that were in serious demise..." said bill author Senate Julie Rosen, R-Vernon Center. One of the key factors for establishing the reform, Rosen said, was that beneficiaries are living longer, and benefits are continuing to be paid.

So today Craig is going to look at political ideology in America. We're going to focus on liberals and conservatives and talk about the influencers of both of these viewpoints. Now, it's important to remember that political ideologies don't always perfectly correspond with political parties, and this correspondence becomes less and less likely over time. So, sure we can say that Democrats tend to be liberal and Republicans tend to be conservative, but we're not going to be talking about political parties in this episode. It's also important to note, that there are going to be a lot of generalizations here, as most peoples' ideologies fall on a spectrum, but we're going to try our best *crosses fingers* to summarize the most commonly held viewpoints for each of these positions as they are used pretty frequently in discussions of American politics.

Presentation slides: http://bit.ly/fQJqrz American Academy of Actuaries pension experts addressed the risks inherent with retirement plan designs and the implications for retirement planning and public policy in this April 4, 2011, Capitol Hill Briefing, "Pension Risk and Your Retirement: Understanding Retirement Risk and Overcoming Challenges through Public Policy Options." Noting that half the population outlives its life expectancy but that most retirees plan for their assets to last only through their life expectancy, presenters Ethan Kra and Lane West detailed a lengthy list of risks to a safe and comfortable retirement, including investment risk, longevity risk, inflation risk, expense risk, and interest rate risk. Other threats include timing of retirement, not saving enough, not saving early enough, leakage from defined contribution (DC) plans when employees roll over savings into an IRA, and being out of the work force during a portion of one's prime earning years. "Public policy should work to promote lifetime income," Kra explained. Effective public policy reforms that could achieve that goal include: • Providing incentives for workers to increase retirement savings; • Discouraging lump sum distributions from (DC) plans and encouraging annuitization of lump sum distributions; • Penalizing leakage of funds at the time of DC rollovers or even mandating rollovers; • Supporting pooling of risk; and, • Promoting lifetime income arrangements such as annuities.

The Stanford Graduate School of Business View From The Top speaker series hosted venture capitalist John Doerr in a question and answer session where he helped enlighten students on such topics as start-ups, healthcare and jobs in emerging markets. Doerr, general partner at Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers, emphasized that, "The best entrepreneurs are the ones who really go the distance with their companies, who are always learning." During the presentation, Doerr also emphasized that the investments Kleiner Perkins have made are in companies that are at the top of their game, a virtual who's who of successful ventures that also value job creation. Students also heard a personal story Doerr shared about his early career at Intel when he talked his way into Andrew Grove's first course at the company in which the chip maker taught his organizational philosophy.
