Universal health coverage (UHC) – or fairer, more efficient health financing that pools risk and shares healthcare costs equitably across the population – is about improving access to health services and reducing poverty from catastrophic healthcare expenditure. UHC reforms can improve health and financial protection of people around the world, especially poor and vulnerable populations. Universal Health Coverage was a core of resolutions reached at the United Nations General Assembly on 6th December 2012. High level discussions facilitated by the World Health Organization and other UN agencies have also led to ratification of universal health coverage as the key goal for the post-development agenda for global health. The concept is taking off in countries as varied as South Africa, India, Rwanda, Indonesia, and the United States, with governments around the world engaging in serious political and technical discussions on how to expand health coverage. Still others are considering such reforms, but are struggling to navigate the legal, financial, and political frameworks of their countries to determine the best path toward reform. While details vary from country to country, the key common goals are that the cost burden of health care is shared widely and evenly, patients and their families have increased coverage, resources are better utilized, and health outcomes are improved. Pertinent questions arise: Is it possible for Nigeria to achieve universal health coverage by 2015 as initially planned? What economic, social and political factors militate against the attainment of UHC in Nigeria? What existing model can the nation adopt to fast track UHC? Which middle or low income country in Africa can we learn from? What does it take to achieve UHC in Nigeria? Are we really to pay for price? And who pays? Those and similar questions will be fulcrum of discussion this week.
Five years ago, the Affordable Care Act was signed into law. And today, we have Navigant’s Paul Keckley looking at the goals of the law and discussing what’s working and what’s ahead for the ACA.
So Is It Working?
Has it increased access to coverage? Yes, at least for some, and at least for now.
Has it reduced costs? It’s too soon to know.
Has it improved the public’s understanding of the U.S. health system? Regrettably no.
The stakes in the states are higher
The winners and losers are shaking out
Innovators with value-driven solutions are disrupting the status quo
The ACA will be a spotlight issue in Campaign 2016
Tune in to listen to more of what Paul Keckley has to say with our host Patricia Salber (@docweighsin).

I will admit that my comfort food of choice would be a warm loaf of crusty bread (yes the whole loaf) and some cold butter to slather (good word!), watch it melt into all the tiny, delectable holes and enjoy. I did use to do what they say is healthy and use 100% whole grain bread....or swap out my white rice for brown rice....and now what?! We are finding more and more research that the grains - especially what has been done to them through mass-production may be the root of so many of our health issues. Hop on board the No Gran Train and join us as we delve into this issue a little more.

I'm inspired to talk about this topic today because for the last few months I have been living in a way that has set me up to be very anxious and depressed right now!
But I know exactly what I was doing (and not doing) that has led me to feel this way.
It's a little more complicated for me because I've moved across the country and still feel like a foreigner in this new city.
But, no matter why you are feeling anxious or depressed, there are lifestyle tweaks you can make that help with every case of depression and anxiety.
So many of us are experiencing anxiety - anxiety over our careers, finances, relationships, health, life direction, etc.
Am I making the right choice?
Am I forgetting something?
I don't like my job.
I don't have enough money.
Should I be more like them?
Why aren't I as happy as I thought I would be?
What's wrong with me?
What should I do with my life?
Being in a state of depression, anxiety and fight-or-flight is not a great place to be on a regular basis, for your health or your happiness.
We want to spend more time with the parasympathetic nervous system, or the "feed and breed" mode.
I have ten lifestyle habits for you to choose from that you can start doing on a regular basis. They will calm you down, get you into a happy place, and help you to see your life more clearly. You don't have to do everything - just a few - and you'll start feeling better very soon.
