To treat cancer, is the force strong with nanorobots?
Nanowerk News
Every day, more than 20,000 people around the world succumb to cancer, according to statistics compiled by the World Health Organization. Thousands more continue to suffer through treatment and its side effects. Since the drugs used to kill cancer cells are just as toxic to neighboring healthy cells, researchers have long coveted a drug delivery method that targets cancer cells alone, while bypassing the healthy ones.

New family physicians tend to settle close to training sites
AAFP

According to a Graham Center one-pager published in the Nov. 15 issue of American Family Physician, researchers used 2009 data from the American Medical Association Physician Masterfile to determine that 56 percent of family medicine residency graduates practice within 100 miles of where they completed their residency training.

Private website touted as interim alternative to HealthCare.gov
By Pamela Lewis Dolan
Despite doubts from many, President Barack Obama remains confident that the technical glitches that overshadowed the launch of the federal health insurance exchange in October will be fixed by Nov. 30. Obama said while the site was getting better each week, supporters should remind their friends and family that HealthCare.gov isn't the only place consumers could enroll for insurance. He said enrollment could happen over the phone, in person and by mail. What Obama didn't mention was that there is also an alternative website where consumers could shop for plans. And it's gaining a lot of attention.

Boot camp targets gap in radiation oncologist training
University of Western Ontario via Medical Xpress
For the patient with laryngeal cancer — a cancer of the voice box — radiation therapy can be a lifeline. Alternately, it could be the thing that takes the patient's voice before the disease takes their life.
