A ‘CRISIS’ IN BROOKLYN — Calling the health of some Brooklyn neighborhoods a "crisis," Borough President Eric Adams and Health Commissioner Dr. Mary Bassett unveiled updated health profiles for every community district in the borough. Adams described the report as a "troubling diagnosis." But missing from Wednesday's press conference at Brooklyn Borough Hall was any semblance of a treatment plan. Instead, Bassett said she hoped the information would spur community boards to action and inspire local change. While it is true everyone has a role to play, Adams said he would like the health department, over the next few weeks, to come up with some plan or policy prescription to address these issues. Adams said "everything should be on the table," in this fight, including politically unpopular solutions such as taxing unhealthy items or rezoning certain areas to keep out unhealthy fast food restaurants.

NOW WE KNOW — Are you struggling to impress your potential in-laws? Well, an article in Human Nature suggests that bribing them won’t work.

ACROSS THE RIVER — New Jersey’s fifth medical marijuana dispensary will open to patients today. The Department of Health granted Breakwater Treatment & Wellness in Cranbury the final permit to operate as an alternative treatment center after an inspection of the facility, according to a news release.

INSURANCE REPORT: POLITICO reports: “Community Health Alliance, a startup health plan in Tennessee seeded with federal loan dollars under the Affordable Care Act, will shut down at the end of the year. The co-op becomes the six such nonprofit plan to collapse. Roughly 27,000 customers will need to find new coverage when the next enrollment period begins Nov. 1. There had been earlier signs that the insurer was struggling. The co-op cut off enrollment midway through the 2015 enrollment period, citing concerns about the mix of customers that it was attracting. The Tennessee insurer lost $22 million during its first year of operations, according to financial filings.Under the ACA, 23 nonprofit startups were provided low-interest loans totaling $2.4 billion. Co-op plans based in New York, Kentucky, Louisiana, Nevada, and Iowa have also collapsed because of financial difficulties.”
PHARMA REPORT: The Wall Street Journal looks at the legal dispute that has ensnared a $100 million research effort to test new Alzheimer’s drugs. “The dispute highlights the growing financial stakes for academic institutions when it comes to research. Academic research centers manage significant corporate and federal grants, including large ‘center grants’ that are increasingly granted to institutions with expertise to carry out multiple trials in the same disease area. The big money at stake, and the possibility to share in the fruits of any commercial successes, can lead to significant tension over ownership of intellectual work.” http://on.wsj.com/1OvV3Ko

WHAT WE’RE READING:
-MONEY ON THE SIDELINES — The minds at the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services thought they had come up with a pretty good idea. They would begin paying physicians for chronic care management sessions. They offered $42. But very few seem interested, according to Modern Healthcare. “The CMS estimates 70 percent of Medicare beneficiaries—roughly 35 million—would be eligible, but CMS has only received reimbursement requests for 100,000 beneficiaries thus far.” http://bit.ly/1PhapT1
TODAY'S TIP — Comes from the state’s health department. “Flu vaccines cannot cause flu illness.”
-SPEED PILL — Placebos can make you run faster. “Qualitative data suggest that placebo may have improved performance by both reducing perception of effort and increasing potential motivation, in accord with the psychobiological model for exercise performance, and that cognitive and noncognitive processes appear to have influenced placebo response.” http://1.usa.gov/1Ph9oKE
