Union highlights important issues for academic medicine
• Safety net

• New paper
examines trends and developments in promoting diversity
increases federal debt limit
The Senate on Jan. 28 approved a resolution that
would increase the federal debt limit by $1.9 trillion, raising the legal
limit for government borrowing to an unprecedented $14.3 trillion. In
an amendment introduced by Senate Majority Leader Harry Reed (D-Nev.),
“pay-as-you-go” rules would be reinstated. Under “pay-as-you-go” policies, any
new spending or tax cuts would have to be offset by corresponding spending
cuts or tax increases. However, the amendment also includes $1.6
trillion in exceptions that would allow Congress to extend expiring tax cuts
and reverse the 21 percent reduction in Medicare payments to physicians
without offsetting the costs.
of the Union highlights important issues for academic medicine
On Jan. 27, President Obama
delivered the State of the Union address before
a joint session of Congress, touching on many issues important to academic
medicine, including health care reform. The president urged Congress to
“take another look at the plan” and not walk away from reform. He
further indicated that he would be receptive to other proposals that would
bring down the deficit, cover the uninsured, strengthen Medicare for seniors,
and stop insurance company abuses. Also, in the wake of large
investments in basic research, starting in 2011, the president said there
will be a freeze on all discretionary government spending for three years,
with the exception of “spending related to our national security, Medicare,
Medicaid, and Social Security.” In addition, President Obama reiterated
his commitment to end the Federal Famil y Education Loan program, in favor of
a college tax credit and increasing Pell Grants, and acknowledged his support
for the Public Service Loan Forgiveness Program.
Safety net providers weather the recession
According to a study
by the Center for Studying Health System Change (HSC), the financial impact
on health care safety net providers during the recession has been less severe
than expected. Mainly, funding from the 2009 American Recovery and
Reinvestment Act helped offset losses in state, local, and private funding
and allowed for increased support for “hospitals serving disproportionate
numbers of low-income and Medicaid patients.” However, the report also
concluded that these providers were, most likely, experiencing increased
demands for care before the recession, and have been receiving assistance
from federal grants to community health centers over the past decade.
New paper examines trends and developments in
The American Council on Education
(ACE) and the College Board released a new policy paper on major developments
and trends in access and diversity in higher education. “A 21st- Century
Imperative: Promoting Access and Diversity in Higher Education” describes
significant points that emerged out of an ACE roundtable discussion by higher
education leaders on diversity. Considerations for new policies moving
forward include identifying and measuring ways diversity and positive
educational outcomes are linked, how to factor the issue of merit into
educational initiatives, and expanding the definition of diversity. An Access and Diversity
Toolkit for Higher Education Professionals was also developed to help
institutions implement policies.

Donald A. Borchard
was a podiatrist whose energy out-paced his staff for decades,
co-workers said. As recently as May, he still worked three days a
week at his Saginaw practice of 60 years. Borchard died Tuesday,
January 5, 2010, one day short of his 92nd birthday. His son, Dr. Charles A.

years and marveled at his enthusiasm. "It was a joy to work with
my dad," Borchard said. "The man had energy that was
unbelievable, both in and out of the office."
Borchard graduated from the the Ohio College of
Podiatric Medicine in 1948. He opened his practice in downtown
Saginaw in 1949 and was joined by his brother in 1951, Dr. William F.
Borchard, who predeceased him in 2007. He was former

15. Marginalia: A follow-up to last week’s snow day –
what did your parents, siblings,
grandparents say you had to do in
order to guarantee a snow day?
As you may remember, I sent the following question to Caduceus Newsletter recipients:
I had a conversation with a friend, who
informed me that his 9-year old niece had told him of the three necessary
criteria to guarantee a snow day from school:
1) There has
to be the realistic possibility of snow. ("I mean, hoping for
snow in June -- it's just not gonna happen!");
2) You gotta
pray really hard, and mean it, too;
IMPORTANT OF ALL, you gotta wear your pj's backwards the night before.
So here's my question: What did
your older siblings, friends, grandparents say you had to do in order
to guarantee a snow day from school?
Your answers just might appear, anonymously of course, in the
Marginalia section of a Caduceus Newsletter.
are some replies:
In 8th grade, my math teacher
told us that whenever there had been a snow day it was because she had done
the "Snow Dance" the night before. And this dance included her
wiggling around in her front yard in the nude. It was very frightening.
Praying for a snow day then became very serious, because you really had to
want it bad for you to hope that Mrs. Frank was somewhere naked.
My mom said that if i
didn't do my homework it wouldn't snow....so i did my homework (even though i
didn't want to!) and it snowed....miraculous!
My older sister used to tell me
that in order to guarantee a snow day from school I had to put crushed up ice
in a bucket and set it outside in our front yard. Why the front yard? So God
could see it and then He would know that I wanted it to snow! Hope you enjoyed it!
Hey! My brother told me that he
and all his friends flushed ice down the toilet so they would have a snow day.
My mom has always told me to
drink hot chocolate the night before to make it snow. :)
According to the elementary
teachers' handbook, In addition to pj's backwards, you must sleep with
a spoon under your bed, and throw ice down the toilet before going to bed the
night before the anticipated day off.
Living in South Louisiana, pigs
had to fly for us to get a snow day! L
My parents told me I had to go
outside with a handful of ice, spin around three times, throw the ice over my
left shoulder, and chase down the ice cubes and sprinkle salt on top of
them. Something about some chemical reaction that would follow, which
was over my head at the time, so I believed them.
Since I spent much of my childhood
in Canada, snow days were non-existent. I walked to school in several feet of
snow, uphill both ways. Haha. Maybe the last part is a bit of an
exaggeration, BUT there was a hill involved if I wanted the short cut...
Probably doesn't help your survey much :(
Sleep with a spoon under your
pillow and wear your pj's backward!
Well, you must have something
VERY important planned on the snow day (pick Mama up at airport, check
results of vitally important experiment, and pray that it DOESN'T
Dump at least 50 gallons of water
on the driveway, car, and front door-step of the house belonging to the
superintendent. (Ed. Note: Even if you didn’t
get a snow day, you might have to stay out of sight for this one!)
