Saturday Link Love: Academia, Drug Users, and Health Insurance

Saturday Link Love: Academia, Drug Users, and Health Insurance January 14, 2017

Saturday Link Love is a new feature where I collect and post links to various articles I’ve come upon over the past week. Feel free to share any interesting articles you’ve come along as well! The more the merrier.

Look What They Make You Give, on Vitae—“I asked my husband: ‘What other line of work encourages you to train for as much as a decade, and leaves you potentially without an opportunity for local work?'”

We Are on the Verge of Darkness, on Foreign Policy—“We forget at our peril the demagogues of yesteryear — the fascists, communists, and their ilk who claimed privileged insight into the majority’s interest but ended up crushing the individual.”

The Media Treats White Drugs Users Like Angels Who Lost Their Way and Treats Black Drug Users Like Demons Who Must Be Returned to Hell, on Medium—“Notice how white drug dealers’ mugshots aren’t plastered on every channel at the top of the news hour.”

I’m a Doctor and I Chose My Job Based on Health Insurance, on Dr. Jen Gunter—“Twelve years ago it became clear we needed to move. I was working at the University of Colorado in academic medicine and my job was just fine. My son Oliver’s lungs were not.”

We Are All Going to Pay for Trump’s Wall, on Feministing—“The costs go far beyond $14 billion in taxpayer money; it’s a disastrous proposal that would adversely affect us all, especially those who are most vulnerable- prisoners, native communities, and migrants.”
