The October issue of Texas Medicine features a cover story on the 50th anniversary of the first surgeon general's report to link smoking to cancer. It examines the tobacco industry's marketing of new products to younger potential customers, and efforts from state and federal health
organizations to make smoking a thing of the past. In the latest issue, you'll also find information on the new Institute of Medicine report on graduate medical education, a look at state health agencies under Sunset Commission review, a comparison of conflicting health insurance premium subsidy court rulings, a discussion of emerging trends in worksite primary care, and information on the TMF Health Quality
Institute, Texas' quality improvement organization.
