Capsules: Poll: Three Years Later, Americans Still Don't Understand Health Law; Some Medical Students Seek A Match For Two

Now on Kaiser Health News' blog, Jenny Gold reports on the findings of a new poll regarding the health law: "It's been three years since President Barack Obama signed the Affordable Care Act into law, yet two-thirds of uninsured adults — the very people the law sets out to help — say they still don't know what it means for them" (Gold, 3/20).

Also on Capsules, Alvin Tran reports on the particular interests of some medical students at match day: "More than 17,000 fourth-year medical students found out where they’ll be completing the final years of their medical education on “Match Day” last Friday. But unlike most of their peers at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, John Zampella and Matthew Huddle weren’t focused on where they’ll be doing their medical residency training. Instead, they were more eager to find out if they had been accepted together" (Tran, 3/21). Check out what else is on the blog.
