NYU says it will cover tuition for all its medical students — both now and in the future

first_imgHealthNYU says it will cover tuition for all its medical students — both now and in the future STAT+: By Orly Nadell Farber Aug. 16, 2018 Reprints New York University said Thursday that it will cover tuition for all of its medical students — both current and future students — regardless of their ability to pay.For the 2018-19 academic year, that coverage amounts to $55,018 for each student.The announcement makes NYU the first top-tier institution known to have covered tuition for the entire student body at its medical school. Nationally, 83 percent of M.D. students have $100,000 or more of education debt.advertisement Related: Related: Exclusive analysis of biopharma, health policy, and the life sciences. Stan Honda/AFP/GettyImages “It makes an enormous difference in our students lives,” said Dr. Robert Grossman, a dean at the School of Medicine and CEO of NYU Langone Health. “We think it will, at some level, relieve one source of stress in medical training.” Ultimately, NYU hopes to have an endowment of $600 million to support the effort.The school already allowed students the option to shave off their fourth year of training — typically spent doing additional specialty rotations and applying for residences — saving students a year’s tuition. For the last cohort, 20 percent of students seized this opportunity, said Grossman. Sarah Keltz, a rising second-year student at the School of Medicine, said the announcement was “amazing news for the whole NYU community.”She said the coverage will allow her to consider medical specialties based on where there is a need for care, instead of income potential. Keltz, who is interested in psychiatry, said she can now think about providing care in lower-resource settings.“Hopefully it will increase access for students otherwise deterred by cost,” she added. Tags educationphysicians Medical students are skipping class in droves — and making lectures increasingly obsolete NYU medical school students are getting free tuition. But everyone will reap benefits It took 11 years for NYU to raise enough funding to make the effort possible. To date, the school has raised over $450 million; Grossman and Dr. Rafael Rivera, associate dean for admissions and financial aid, said that the school should now be able to offer tuition-free education without an end in sight.advertisementlast_img read more

Magic Maher leads the way as O’Moore’s claim third title

Scotia iTRADE new top online discount brokerage: Surviscor

Scotia iTRADE earned a score of 87%, taking the top spot for the first time in the history of the scorCard and dethroning past winner Qtrade Investor. Qtrade was the runner up in the third quarter, with a score of 80%. “It’s been a long time since we’ve seen a major push from the industry. Scotia iTRADE not only pushed, it ran away with the title,” said Glenn LaCoste, president of Surviscor. “They did themselves proud and are well deserving of the top spot.” BMO InvestorLine and TD Waterhouse came in third and forth place respectively, with scores of 77% each. Credential Direct was 5th, with 74%, and RBC Direct Investing received a score of 72% for the 6th spot. Scotia iTRADE earned the top spot in three of seven main categories that were assessed as part of the scorCard: website design, account services and website transactions. The company’s new website represents “a new industry level,” according to Surviscor, “and will have many looking up to the new bar.” “To be recognized by Surviscor as Canada’s number one rated online brokerage firm in the industry is a proud moment for Scotia iTRADE,” said Bob Grant, managing director and head of global online brokerage at Scotiabank. “The award is tremendous validation for the incredibly hardworking team who developed and refined the superb online brokerage trading experience which we offer Canadian online investors. We’re extremely appreciative to our loyal clients who have shared very positive feedback with us on our new trading platform, and we remain dedicated to delivering market leading offerings to online investors.” TD Waterhouse earned the highest marks in two of the seven main categories: market intelligence and online resources. BMO InvestorLine beat its competitors in the ‘getting started’ category, and Virtual Brokers won for cost of services. TD Waterhouse has topped the scorCard in past years, but has declined in the rankings as a result of having “rested on its laurels” over the past few years, according to Surviscor. In last place on the scorCard was Laurentian Bank Direct Brokerage, with a score of just 26%. Scotia iTRADE has surged ahead of its competitors in the online discount brokerage space, thanks to a newly designed website that raises the bar for the whole industry, according to the recently released Surviscor Q3-2012 Online Discount Brokerage scorCard. In the review of discount brokerage websites by the Toronto-based research and business intelligence firm, 14 firms’ websites were assessed for features and functionality.

New specialised support to help those living with obesity to lose weight

first_imgNew specialised support to help those living with obesity to lose weight £100m to support children, adults and families achieve and maintain a healthier weightSir Keith Mills appointed to advise on a new incentives and reward approach to encourage healthy behavioursMeasures part of landmark obesity strategy published by the Prime Minister last JulyOver £70 million will be invested into weight management services – made available through the NHS and councils – enabling up to 700,000 adults to have access to support that can help them to lose weight, from access to digital apps, weight management groups or individual coaches, to specialist clinical support.The remaining £30 million will fund initiatives to help people maintain a healthy weight, including access to the free NHS 12 week weight loss plan app and continuing the successful Better Health marketing campaign to motivate people to make healthier choices.Part of the funding from the 30m pot will also go towards upskilling healthcare professionals to support those in early years and childhood with intervention and enhanced training packages, helping up to 6,000 children and families to lead healthy lives.Sir Keith Mills, who has pioneered reward programmes through Airmiles and Nectar points, has been appointed to advise on developing a new “fit miles” approach that will use incentives and rewards to support people to eat better and move more.Sir Keith will support the Government to develop innovative approaches with public and private partners that use incentives to help people make healthier choices.This will draw on best practice from around the world, such as the national step challenge in Singapore, a nation-wide physical activity programme aimed at encouraging Singaporeans to do more physical activity as part of their daily lives with financial incentives.The plans announced today will prioritise helping those who need the most support to achieve a healthier lifestyle, including people living in some of the most deprived areas of the country.Living with excess weight puts people at greater risk of serious illness or death from COVID-19, with risk growing substantially as body mass index (BMI) increases.The COVID-19 pandemic has shown the impact that living with obesity can have on people’s health and it is more important than ever to make it easier for people to move towards a healthier weight.Evidence suggests weight management services can help people to adopt healthier behaviours, lose weight and improve their general wellbeing. This funding will support GPs and other health professionals to help make weight management an integral part of routine care. It will encourage clinicians to have conversations about weight with their patients and enable them to refer patients to new services.Obesity is one of the biggest health crises the country faces. Almost two-thirds (63%) of adults in England are overweight or living with obesity – and 1 in 3 children leave primary school overweight or obese, with obesity-related illnesses costing the NHS £6 billion a year.Prime Minister Boris Johnson, said:Losing weight is hard, but making small changes can make a big difference.Being overweight increases the risk of becoming ill with covid. If we all do our bit, we can reduce our own health risks – but also help take pressure off the NHS.This funding will give extra support to people across the country who want to lose weight too.Health and Social Care Secretary Matt Hancock said:Helping people to achieve or maintain a healthier weight is complex and can be a very hard task. We want to make it easier for people to lose weight, which is why our funding set out today ensures those across all ages have the right level of support and tools they need to make healthier lifestyle choices.These measures will allow us to work with local authorities and optimise different areas of our healthcare services to encourage healthy behaviours for all. The urgency of tackling obesity has been brought to the fore by evidence of the link to an increased risk from COVID-19, so it’s vital we take action on obesity to protect the NHS and improve our nation’s health.Professor Jonathan Valabhji, National Clinical Director for Diabetes and Obesity, said:Obesity is associated with higher risks of type 2 diabetes, heart attacks, strokes, many of the common cancers and is now linked with more severe covid-19 outcomes, so there does indeed need to be wider action to support people to lose weight.Dr Alison Tedstone, Chief Nutritionist at Public Health England said:Living with obesity can have a devastating impact on people’s health and wellbeing in so many ways, not least its link this year to the increased risk from Covid.This investment will greatly boost services for adults struggling with their weight and raising the profile of our Better Health campaign will help to support more people to make healthier choices.The £30 million will be used to fund different a range of different initiatives which aim to support people to maintain a healthy weight:Encouraging millions of adults to reduce their risk of a number of serious diseases by achieving and maintaining a healthy weight through the Better Health campaign. This will motivate people to adopt healthier habits and signpost to the free NHS 12 week weight loss plan app. The campaign will also reach families with children, especially those most at risk of obesity, to adopt ‘whole family’ healthier lifestyle behaviour changes.Expanding behavioural weight management services for children and families to offer them extra support they need to reach a healthy weight.Upskilling health care professionals in the early years to confidently assess needs, offer family advice and interventions, create advanced training packages and normalise conversations about achieving healthy growth to ensure every child gets the best start in life.Laying the foundations to make child height and weight measurement data collected through the National Child Measurement Programme available to health professionals though Digital Child Health records, and parents and carers through digital personal child health record. /Public Release.

New Frankston VCAT Set To Hear More Cases, Faster

first_imgNew Frankston VCAT Set To Hear More Cases, Faster VIC PremierVictorians in Melbourne’s south-east will have their cases heard and resolved faster, with the opening of a new Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal (VCAT) facility in Frankston.Attorney-General Jaclyn Symes joined Member for Frankston Paul Edbrooke at the new facility in the heart of Frankston’s shopping and business district today, which will help fast track disputes and clear the backlog of cases caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. The new VCAT site on Balmoral Street will mainly be used to hear renting, consumer and guardianship matters – and also includes remote witness facilities to better support people affected by family violence. The new facility will also offer alternative dispute resolution, including the Fast Track Mediation and Hearing program – a partnership between VCAT and the Dispute Settlement Centre of Victoria.It becomes the second VCAT site to have a Koori hearing room, which will provide accessible and culturally appropriate dispute resolution services.This new venue will help ease the pressure on Victoria’s tribunals – exacerbated by the pandemic – using digital technology in hearing rooms and Members’ chambers to provide greater flexibility for online and remote access.Work is also ongoing to support paperless file management at the tribunal where possible, which will further increase its capacity to conduct remote hearings.Frankston is one of three new state-of-the-art VCAT venues funded as part of the Labor Government’s $11.5 million Family Violence Reform package. The first site in Oakleigh was opened in February 2020, while the development in Bundoora is on track to open next month.This is in addition to the $26.95 million the Labor Government recently allocated to VCAT to manage the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic and help clear backlogs.As stated by Attorney-General Jaclyn Symes “The new VCAT facility at Frankston will resolve more cases, faster – allowing those who use these important services to move on with their lives and businesses.” “We know that the coronavirus pandemic has had a significant impact on our courts system – that’s why we’re investing $25 million to boost VCAT’s capacity and upgrade digital systems so more matters can be heard faster.”As stated by Member for Frankston Paul Edbrooke“This new VCAT facility – in the heart of Frankston – will give locals easy access to the services they need to settle their dispute in a timely manner.” President, Justice Michelle Quigley“VCAT’s new Frankston venue is an important part of VCAT’s vision to increase access to justice for local communities outside Melbourne’s CBD – providing greater capacity for dispute resolution across the South-East.” /Public Release.

The rich want cars that coddle them, shift for them, and ones that have lots of turbos they can brag about.Meanwhile, the Viper is a more humble utensil on paper – it has but one camshaft, an old-fashioned clutch pedal, and zero turbochargers. But that doesn’t mean it isn’t fast. Thanks to a crowdfunding effort by 378 fans, the Dodge Viper ACR will tackle Germany’s Nürburgring racetrack for one lap.According to MotorAuthority, the initiative was headed by the Viper Club of America and managed to raise US$165,160 to get the Viper to the ‘Ring for a proper record-breaking attempt next month. That cost covers the transport of two Vipers across the ocean, plus track rental and the payment of two elite race drivers to pilot the beasts. The two Vipers for the record were loaned by Viper Exchange dealership in Texas and both have the no-holds-barred Extreme Aero package equipped.  RELATED TAGSDodgeViperCoupePerformanceSupercarSupercarsNew VehiclesPerformance VehiclesSupercarsDodge ViperDominik FarnbacherLuca StolzNurburgringTexasUnited Statescenter_img PlayThe Rolls-Royce Boat Tail may be the most expensive new car everPlay3 common new car problems (and how to prevent them) | Maintenance Advice | Driving.caPlayFinal 5 Minivan Contenders | Driving.caPlay2021 Volvo XC90 Recharge | Ministry of Interior Affairs | Driving.caPlayThe 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning is a new take on Canada’s fave truck | Driving.caPlayBuying a used Toyota Tundra?

The scent of a car’s brand new plastic and leather, fresh off the manufacturing line is one that many folks love. Heck, some convenience stores even sell air fresheners called “new car” so you can fake the smell inside your vehicle years after its purchased. That’s less a recommendation and more a statement of fact. The Chinese market, however, isn’t so sold on the smell.
