As the saying goes, these things come in threes.
A year ago we inaugurated Trib+, our series of free, subject-specific newsletters, by launching Trib+Water, a one-stop shop for state water policy news, data, research and more. Soon afterward we added Trib+Edu, which focuses on public education. Today — on the same day we've updated our massive Hospitals Explorer — we're launching the third member of the newsletter family, Trib+Health, which will focus on the state's health care landscape.
Much like the other Trib+ newsletters, which are produced in conjunction with respected academic institutions, Trib+Health will be published twice a month. It curates content from both The Texas Tribune and our partner this go-round, the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center. You can expect selected coverage from Tribune reporters, info on the career moves of key newsmakers, Q&As, book reviews, abstracts of studies and research, and notable events listings.
“At this time of great change and uncertainty — for both providers and patients — we are proud to take a leadership role in the public dialogue central to the future of all those who live in Texas,” UT Southwestern President Daniel K. Podolsky said. “There’s never been a more urgent need for timely, accurate information. We are committed to providing engaging discussion about the continuum of issues relevant to health care, including the complex landscape of health care delivery, the education and training of the health care workforce and research that will be the foundation of future progress.’’
