Miami, FL (PRWEB) December 06, 2013

On November 28th, 2013, Thanksgiving morning, Branches delivered 6,389 hot meals to needy individuals and families in less than four hours. This is the largest meal delivery effort in Florida on Thanksgiving Day. 1,574 volunteers at 8 sites throughout Miami-Dade and Broward Counties worked hard on Thanksgiving morning by putting together individual meals via assembly lines and passing them off to volunteer drivers who delivered them. Each meal included turkey, stuffing, green beans, mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce, a roll with butter and of course a piece of pie.

However, Branches Thanksgiving program is about much more than just a hot meal; all meals include a Meal Insert, which provides clients with valuable information about community resources and programs in English, Spanish and Creole. Branches partnered with several United Methodist congregations as well as Temple Israel to make this Thanksgiving miracle possible. The cooking preparations began a few days prior which included the seasoning of turkeys and prepping of all the vegetables, trimmings and dessert. Many volunteer chefs and cooks spent countless hours getting ready for the big day to make sure that everything went off without a hitch.

A huge thank you goes out to our premiere Thanksgiving Meal Delivery sponsors:

Carnival Foundation

Regions Bank

Brown Mackie College Miami

Molina Healthcare

Publix Charities

Batchelor Foundation

United Way of Miami-Dade

Goya Foods of Florida

Introduction to U.S. Health Policy: The Organization, Financing, and Delivery of Health Care in America

Introduction to U.S. Health Policy: The Organization, Financing, and Delivery of Health Care in America

Health care reform has dominated public discourse over the past several years, and the recent passage of the Affordable Care Act, rather than quell the rhetoric, has sparked even more debate. Donald A. Barr reviews the current structure of the American health care system, describing the historical and political contexts in which it developed and the core policy issues that continue to confront us today.

This comprehensive analysis introduces the various organizations and institutions that make the U.S. health care system work—or fail to work, as the case may be. A principal message of the book is the seeming paradox of the quality of health care in this country—on the one hand it is the best medical care system in the world, on the other it is one of the worst among developed countries because of how it is organized.

Barr introduces readers to broad cultural issues surrounding health care policy, such as access, affordability, and quality. He discusses specific elements of U.S. health care, including insurance, especially Medicare and Medicaid, the shift to for-profit managed care, the pharmaceutical industry, issues of long-term care, the plight of the uninsured, medical errors, and nursing shortages. The latest edition of this widely adopted text updates the description and discussion of key sectors of America’s health care system in light of the Affordable Care Act.

CU Science Update 23 - Health Care Delivery

Despite remarkable technological advances in medicine, there is a great need to devise new models for delivering healthcare. The challenge is to get doctors and patients to come together, to sift through all the complex information and come up with an understanding of the medical condition. This understanding will help the patient know what contributes to a disease such as lifestyle, genetics and environment, and will make it possible for them to research their condition and be better prepared to confront it. David Rosenman, a physician of internal medicine at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, is our special guest. He discusses ways to innovate and collaborate not just with those working within the healthcare profession, but also outside to come up with new ideas. CU Science Update’s correspondent Priscilla Carlson met with Dr. Rosenman where he tells us more about healthcare delivery, understanding the science that improves outcomes, leading to greater patient satisfaction.. Hosted by Ina Damm Muri. Produced by the University of Colorado at Boulder Journalism and Mass Communication students.
