Below are links to pieces I wrote that were posted at other sites in the last week or two; all of the websites are fantastic and, whether you read my posts or not, I highly recommend checking them regularly – especially if you’re interested in American health policy, the Millennial generation, and international development.
- How to Win Friends and Influence Millennials – my post on the upcoming state and federal health insurance exchanges and how health insurers can attract the Millennial generation. Originally at Project Millennial, then picked up by the Health Care Blog, an event that I am embarrassingly excited by (the comments section is getting fun; my favorite: “Like all twenty somethings, they have their heads up their asses. They don’t buy insurance because they don’t need insurance….”)
- Good African Coffee and the False Choice of “Trade Not Aid” – on why the slogan “Trade Not Aid” is a false choice that unnecessarily narrows the development discussion. It’s up at A View from the Cave (Tom Murphy’s blog), and Nick Kristof even read it, along with the company’s CEO and founder, Andrew Rugasira
- MDG 5a: An Update on Maternal Mortality – posted at WhyDev (a group blog generally written by young expats working in aid and development), A View from the Cave, and Kissito International (the blog of the organization I’m currently working with in Uganda). It’s an overview of maternal mortality around the world.
- Kenyans Do it Better: Thoughts on the First (Ever) Kenyan Presidential Debate – on how the debate was more revealing, and entertaining, than any American presidential debate I’ve watched (the final debate of 2013 is Monday, February 25th). It’s up at WhyDev
And a picture of Jinja, Uganda, from this weekend, for no other reason than that it’s nice to look at:
