Dragon Health News
The organization, “Dragon Health News,” will seek to package the plethora of information relating to the field of healthcare into a succinct newsletter that will be distributed bi-weekly to the DUCOM student body. The constantly-changing landscape of healthcare, combined with the extreme partisanship that is being observed in the present political climate, creates a significant challenge in obtaining unbiased, accurate information. Medical students have limited time to follow this expanding field; the Dragon Health News organization wants to ensure that, despite their constrained schedules, all individuals at DUCOM are able to effectively navigate news relating to the healthcare field by providing both resources from which reliable information can be obtained as well as snapshots of the most pertinent news headlines along with short, unbiased summaries. There is to date no organization on campus dedicated to providing healthcare news and policy directly to the student body. Furthermore, while many organizations are centered around healthcare policy, these organizations are specifically focused on one aspect of the field, i.e. helping the homeless or advocating for proper immigrant healthcare delivery. Dragon Health News will serve as a resource for students by providing information from all areas of healthcare.
