Hello Everyone!
After reading this forum for a while, I decided to join in. My story: I graduated in May '03 from a college in NYC. I have been working in NYC since then. I am hoping to move to Boston to complete a Masters degree. Considering the expenses I am hoping to secure a job before I move up there for school. Since I'll be doing the masters part time, I can work full time doing research. I have two years of research from undergrad and have been pretty involved with patient care, working at Drs. office etc.
Now, I wanted to ask you guys for advice: How do I go about securing a job at a Medical Center like B&W, MGH? Since the two centers are considered to be top notch, do you guys think applying through the Partners website is a good idea? Or is there a way of directly...

I see your point about cancer

In the end it is God's will whether we go. Still if some inventor comes up with a cancer cure, this is also God's will, and like fighting other diseases, I think we should celebrate it if it happens. What is almost a complete waste of money though, is all that is poured in the universities and medical centers so "scientists" can publish papers nobody understands, that don't do a damn thing for the common person. It is kind of a welfare for geeks. Get some businessman, give him the freedom to hire top people and I guarantee you, we will have a cure within a year. I meant more that if FORCED to choose between cancer research and art, I would choose cancer

Analysis confirms heightened foodborne illness risk in youngsters
'Bacterial foodborne illnesses are more common in children younger than 5 years old than in the general population, even after adjusting for increased medical care–seeking, according to a study led by researchers from the US Centers for Disease Prevention and Control (CDC).'
'Using foodborne illness data from FoodNet, a system the CDC uses to gather information on confirmed foodborne illnesses from 10 states or parts of states, the research group estimated the number of illnesses in the two groups for five enteric bacteria: Campylobacter, Escherichia coli O157, nontyphoidal Salmonella, Shigella, and Yersinia enterocolitica

Learn something. Deal with the FACTS:
Cutting the USA's obesity rate to, say, the same as France's, would save TENS of billions of dollars every year and increase the life expectancy of Americans by 7 years.
Obese Americans spend about 42 percent more on health care than normal-weight Americans, according to a new study based on 2006 figures. Medical spending on obesity-related conditions is estimated to have reached $147 billion a year in 2008, according to the new study, published online on Monday in the journal Health Affairs. That figure represents almost 10 percent of all medical spending, the study found
