*** What the Truck?!

From Larry Bearfield of Fern’s Country Store in Carlisle, Mass. (Fern’s is the official country store of the JOTW Network.):

To my Friends & Fernites from Afah!

You may have read that about a month ago, “Lucille” my 1956 Chevy pickup truck was crashed into. I was stopped at a stop sign and a young lady taking a turn got a Frisbee caught in her steering wheel and ran into me. Ya just can’t make this stuff up.

I’ve settled with the insurance company and in looking at the damage it’s apparent that it would cost too much to fix my old truck. So, sadly, I need to replace Lucille.

So I’m reaching out wherever I can… I’m looking for a 55 1/2 or 56 Chevy pickup 3100 (the 55 1/2 was a model change and is the same as a 56)….. I’d like something relatively stock – meaning not a hotrod or show truck. I use my truck daily year-round. If something needs just a little bit of work that’s OK. I prefer 6cyl, 4 speed on floor. Something from AZ, FL, TX would be best… the lands of where rot and rust doesn’t grow easily… I want solid a body and good mechanicals or mechanicals that need a little tlc. Shipping is not a problem.

If you could do some scouting around your area or if you know someone in the south/southwest I’d greatly appreciate it. Often times, vehicles like these come up locally but are off of the national radar screen. Feel free to pass along my email address and/or cell number 617.584.5001.

Thanks for your help!

Larry

P.S. Here’s Lucille so you can get an idea of what I’m looking for: http://fernscountrystore.com/fun/ferns-fotos/lucille-the-ferns-wondertruck/

AcademyHealth, the professional home for health services researchers, policy analysts and practitioners, is currently seeking an Associate to provide administrative and substantive support on a program addressing issues related to health care financing and organization and a new initiative focused on translation and dissemination of health services research on policy and practice. The Changes in Health Care Financing and Organization (HCFO) initiative, a Robert Wood Johnson Foundation-sponsored program, funds research that examines major changes in health care financing and organization and their effects on cost, access and quality. It also bridges the gap between research and policy by translating findings and disseminating them to appropriate stakeholders. The Associate would support HCFO’s grantmaking, convening and dissemination activities.

The new institute, focused on translation and dissemination, will undertake activities that inform health services researchers about the research priorities of health policymakers and delivery system leaders, engage new and underutilized media to provide decision-makers with sound research-based evidence when they need it, and support activities that advance the science and art of translation and dissemination for policy and practice. The Associate would support all areas of institute’s work.

The ideal candidate is highly organized, a self-starter, great writer and eager to take on new challenges. Early career professionals with two to four years of substantive work experience in health policy or health care financing, ideally with some experience in communications, journalism or marketing. Candidates must have an understanding of, and experience using, new and emerging technologies for communicating research findings to decision-makers.
