Returning from a recent trip to his native Spain, 89-year-old Emeritus Professor Miguel Marin-Padilla made a surprising decision—after nearly 60 years in academic medicine and more than 190 scientific publications, it was time to leave science behind. “It is time for me to close that door and let young people move the field forward,” he says.
Findings from a Dartmouth study, led by Taressa Fraze, PhD, offer new details about how Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs) are using home visits to improve care management and identify patient needs while aiming to reduce costs.

Preliminary evidence from a new national Dartmouth study suggests that external food cue responsiveness is measurable by parental report in preschool-age children. Responsiveness was greater among children with, versus without, usual TV advertisement exposure. These results may provide a better understanding of how an obesogenic food environment shapes the development of children’s eating behaviors at a young age.
A Geisel research team led by JoAnna Leyenaar has been approved for a $2.6 million award to compare the effectiveness of direct admission and admission through emergency departments for hospitalized children.
