 Supreme Court: After the oral arguments there were debates around the country, reactions in the markets, and plenty of speculation about what will happen when Chief Justice Roberts holds the court's secret vote, Greg Stohr and Seth Stern report for Bloomberg.

 Cancer: Cancer rates have fallen overall in the US, but obesity-linked cancers have risen, Betsy McKay reports for the Wall Street Journal.

Announcements

The 2017 California Fellowship, for California-based journalists only, will be held March 5-9, 2017 in Los Angeles. This Fellowship will focus on vulnerable populations and access to care and health care reform and innovation. We also take an in-depth look at how community conditions influence individuals' prospects for health. Each Fellow receives a $1,000 stipend to assist with the costs of reporting an ambitious Fellowship project on a California health issue, as well as six months of mentoring by a Senior Fellow. Deadline to apply is Dec. 1. For more information, go here.

Our health care system commits tremendous resources to extending life but comparatively little to end-of-life planning and care that honors patients’ wishes. This webinar will give an overview of the problem, identify changes to our health care system that might help, and offer insights on how journalists might spur more conversations on how we approach death in America. Find info and register here.
