A few of the recent pieces I’ve liked:
Jennifer Brown and Christopher N. Osher in the Denver Post: Prescription Kids (a six-part investigative series on the extensive prescribing of psychotropic drugs to Colorado foster children; via Reporting on Health)
Lydia DePillis at Washington Post’s Wonkblog: The U.S. still spends way more on teen pregnancy than family planning
David Moberg at In These Times: Meet the ‘Missing’ Workers (“More than 5 million Americans have given up hope of a job. Who are they?”)
William Laurance at Yale Environment 360: Will Increased Food Production Devour Tropical Forest Lands?
Julie Beck in The Atlantic: The Private Lives of Public Bathrooms
Any other recommendations of public-health pieces worth a look?
