  • In May, the U.S. Senate approved a bill that would permit the importation of foreign prescription drugs if the U.S. Health and Human Services Department certifies them safe.
  • In early May, the Illinois State Medical Society announced it will lobby for state and federal laws to monitor retail health clinics.
  • Connecticut Gov. M. Jodi Rell signed into law a measure that will require hospitals to provide emergency contraception, even if doing so violates their religious principles.

Also in this issue: HPV vaccine, Alzheimer's Disease, midwifery, retail health clinics, malaria, price transparency, HSAs, a two-part primer for health reform, regulation prescription drugs, evidence-based medicine, and more. Dr. John Dale Dunn reviews Crisis of Abundance--Rethinking How We Pay for Health Care, which he notes "offers sensible analysis and proposals for solutions."
