New, Easy-to-Use U.S. Women’s Health Data Map

The Kaiser Family Foundation (KFF) recently released a new interactive map that allows you to access information on women’s health by state. For each of four categories — demographics, coverage and access, sexual health and pregnancy — you can hover over any state and see quick facts. Clicking on a state reveals a dashboard of charts with state-specific data on women’s health, including insurance and Medicaid coverage, poverty, mental health, HIV, cancer, pregnancy, abortions and use of preventive services. Many indicators provide health care information for women of different racial and ethnic groups. The profiles draw from multiple sources, including the latest data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the U.S. Census Bureau.

Typhoid Mary

The Einstein Book Club will continue its New York City-themed reading with Anthony Bourdain’s perspective on the story of Typhoid Mary. “Bourdain chooses to light the story’s shadows by relating to her as a once-proud, broken-down cook, interpreting Mallon’s infecting spree with a kitchen-hardened aplomb and New York attitude.” — Library Journal.  The entire Einstein community is invited to join the Book Club on March 9 from Noon-1:00pm to discuss this book.
