Today's Globe: Joslin deal, diet soda, mental health parity
Joslin Diabetes Center is expected to disclose today that it has found a new partner to build a $300 million biotechnology laboratory on land it owns in the Longwood Medical Area.
People who drank more than one diet soda each day developed the same risks for heart disease as those who downed sugary regular soda, a large but inconclusive study found.
The US Senate is expected to vote this summer on a bill that could help enhance access to mental health treatment for more than 113 million Americans by requiring that private health insurance provide equal coverage for mental health treatment, Dr. Russ Newman, executive director for professional practice for the American Psychological Association, writes on the op-ed page. In New England almost 6 million people could benefit.
