It's Friday again, time for a round up of the web links we've been reading at ETD. This week we thought we would do something a little different. We've noticed that recently health care reform is the conversational hot topic in the media and blogosphere, everyone has an opinion about it.
Obviously a stable, comprehensive health care plan is an important step on the road to good (national) mental health, so at ETD we've been following the conversation closely. Here are a handful of links addressing perceived pros and con's of Obama's plan, health care reform, and the fate of the U.S. health care system. Frankly, reading all of these articles might leave you with more questions then answers...
