Why should UT Knoxville be limited to its annual Sex Week when Tennessee legislators are celebrating year-round?

7. State of Flux -

Anyone paying attention to recent news headlines alone should have a pretty good indication that health care in the U.S. – really anywhere you look, on local, state or national levels – remains a byzantine, expensive proposition.

It involves navigating a lot of paperwork with bureaucratic legalese that bears the fingerprints of a tangle of stakeholders, including insurers, doctors and lawmakers.

8. Local Experts To Tackle Health Care Changes -

Eight years after the enactment of the Affordable Care Act, health care can still spark contentious debates around the country, though there are nevertheless a few things people can agree on.

11. Innovating Human Resources -

If you boil down the function of human relations to logical extremes, you end up with polar opposites.
