Eight Good Lessons About Health Care — Plus a Ninth


Over at Vox today, Sarah Kliff and Julia Belluz have a list of eight things they now do differently after reporting on health care for a combined decade between them. It’s a great list, and unless I missed something I think I agree with every word on it. Even item #3, which has been, um, a bit of a challenge for me over the past six months.

Of course, as with all collections of advice, even good ones, this one has an underlying ninth item: don’t be an idiot. Sometimes guidelines need to be broken. But they’re still good to keep in mind.
