The organization Costs of Care is holding an essay contest for short (500-700 word) entries about the importance of cost awareness in healthcare. The site instructions include:
“Entries will be judged based on the quality of the writing and the relevance of the anecdote to the topic of cost-awareness in medicine. We are primarily seeking stories. The focus of the contest is not to suggest policy solutions.”
Entries are due May 31st. Four $1000 prize winners will be named. See the contest website for more information here.
