Welcome to the UTMB HPLA “Ben’s Blog”

Hello World! This is my first blog post from UTMB’s Office of Health Policy and Legislative Affairs. There is a lot going on at the moment in the world impacting academic health science centers. Health Care Reform. Workforce Development. Research. Patient Care. Safety. Quality. Costs and Reimbursements. Consumer Protection. Legislative controversy as well as opportunity exists at the federal and state levels. There is much to talk about, to speculate on, and to discuss.

Over the next few months (or years) it is my hope that we can share some information, develop some policy discussions, and critically review potential legislative solutions that impact health science centers and the future of our state, nation and world’s health.

    Dr. Raimer,
    I just received the 2011 Monthly Planner. Thanks so much. I get a copy nearly every year and this is the BEST CALENDAR for keeping track of appointments. My wife, Rita, asks about it every year and faithfully uses it. Even though she uses her iPhone for appointments too, the UTMB Monthly Planner is her “MASTER” planner. So thank you and your office for generously sending to me. It will get plenty of use.
