Caritas, junkets and smarty-pants students

Caritas sale to for-profit chain —The Globe and WBUR are all over the sale of the Caritas hospital group. So that’s where to go to get an explanation of the full-page pop art ad on page 7 in the Globe.

Junkets: We tweeted on this last week but Elizabeth Cooney offers details on new data out of Harvard that finds docs are starting to turn down drug company freebies. (Could new laws requiring that doctors report gifts like travel and expensive meals  have anything to do with it? )

Smart students: Over at Nature Network Boston, find a post about a group of Harvard students who are on a mission to explain news reports about complicated scientific topics. This week’s talk: The Science of Dogs: History, Psychology, and Genetics of Man’s Best Friend.
