Democrat and Chronicle (October 11)
The Doctor Will See Us Now
Tom Campbell, chair of the Department of Family Medicine, says he hopes to introduce drop-in group medical appointments, or DIGMAs, into his practice. The technique allows 12 to 20 patients to share a 60- to 90-minute session with their doctor.

In Higher Education

Inside Higher Ed (October 11)
Uncertain Outlook for Science Funds
"The U.S. Senate has rolled together three bills on science competitiveness into a single, bipartisan package that may or may not be voted on in the upcoming lame duck session this November. The House Science Committee is considering a somewhat similar bill, and passage by the Senate would help to push federal spending on science and technology forward."
