Adjunct professors dealing with health care change

Adjunct professors dealing with health care change

Many college students are beginning the preparation for the fall semester. Students may notice the lack in classes available or lack of professors assigned.

Frustrating as this may be for new and returning college students, it is just as much so for the college and professors themselves.

Adjunct professors are taking a hit in hours as the new federal law, requires health benefits for employees who work 30 or more hours in a company of over 50 employees

This will begin on January 1, 2014, when the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2009 will come into effect.

The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2009 will place a very large price tag for colleges throughout Virginia, which will eventually trickle down into the laps of students with higher tuitions.

'Black Friday' Protest for VEA Educators

 

Virginia Education Association Members Participate in a statewide ‘Black Friday’ on February 17.

This Friday, February 17, educators across the state of Virginia will be wearing black to protest against funding cuts and other state actions undermining public educators and their students.

‘Black Friday,’ initiated by the Virginia Education Association, is a statewide day of mourning to lament the lack of commitment to public education and the loss of respect accorded teachers by our elected officials, said Dr. Kitty Boitnott, VEA president. Boitnott said, “We are in mourning because of the open disrespect and disdain being shown Virginia’s public school teachers by members of this General Assembly and the Governor.”

Boitnott draws attention to the current legislators in session and how they are attacking educators by continuing contract rights and attempting to cut retirement benefits.

L.D. Britt, MD Scholarship aims to increase minority physician numbers Program eases cost for promising minority students

 

Hampton Roads, VA – Minorities are expected to make up more than half the U.S. population by 2050, but a lack of minority physicians, creates major health-care obstacles for underrepresented racial ethnic groups.

 

The L. D. Britt, MD Scholarship Fund is working to solve that problem.

 

Studies show that increased diversity in the physician work force makes health care more accessible to underrepresented minority patients, and they feel better about the care they receive. However, minority students account for fewer than 10 percent of medical school graduates.
