Patients'

concerns --of various kinds-- raised in these stories:
there was this in the Daily Bruin
The University of California’s largest union announced Tuesday it will vote next week on whether to authorize a strike for its patient care workers, claiming the University has backtracked on its negotiations with them.

The announcement comes the week after the union reached a contract agreement with the University for its service workers, calling off a five-day strike it would’ve held this month.

--where things stand now??

And, this story in Daily Cal on Tang and other med- under a changing headline --but not just about Cal also about larger community: there is often an accumulation of unprocessed evidence kits, which has drawn national and local attention in the past few months. State Assemblymember Nancy Skinner, D-Berkeley, recently proposed legislation to address the backlog, which will be heard in committee March 25.

Skinner’s proposed legislation would rush processing of forensic evidence. In January, there were 1,900 untested evidence kits in the county.


see: the op ed DC has on it, too.
