EXTRA: Stanley Feld M.D. takes John McCain's health plan to task:

Mr. McCain seems to have no idea of the problems in the healthcare system. The government should create new rules to change the incentives of the stakeholders. The rules must create incentives for the consumers and physicians and not be punitive. One hundred and fifty million people presently have some form of healthcare insurance provided by their employers. Nonetheless, those insured employees can not afford the deductible they are required to pay while receiving less coverage at higher costs.

Project HYPE is a community-based research project aimed at identifying the social context of hypertension management. The photovoice aspect of the project is designed to have community members photograph those things which positively and negatively affect their hypertension. Participants told the story behind each photo which stimulated dialogue about the issues related to hypertension management.
