Michelle Forbes, a pediatrician whose practice north of Dallas is part of Catalyst, helps recruit doctors to join the network. The muscle of 1,000 doctors is a huge part of the draw, she said, because it creates incentive for large insurance companies to compensate the group more fully for all of the work it does to keep patients healthy. … [Read more...] about Diagnosis for family doctors: Less money, greater hardship, and patients on video

Traditionally, caregivers organize when the people they care for are at risk—and at almost no other time. Perhaps this moment is different.

Buttressing her overview with many recent interviews, she chronicles what was a remarkable transformation, demonstrating how the gangly clown with the crooked, irrepressible smile finally found his calling, making a life for himself in his cherished Castro District, channeling his passion for theatrics into helping others in need, becoming the city’s gay leader. … [Read more...] about ‘Harvey Milk: His Lives and Death,’ by Lillian Faderman
