Study after study demonstrates that poverty is a powerful driver of poor health. Many of America's leading hospitals exist in poor communities. Could these powerful institutions (in economic as well as medical terms) help overcome the deeper sources of failing health among the 46 million Americans living in poverty? A little-known provision of Obamacare provides an unexpected opening. Section 9007 of the Affordable Care Act requires every nonprofit hospital to complete a Community Health Needs Assessment every three years to engage the local community on its general health problems and explain how the hospital intends to address them.

The Browns were born in 1946, the year after the end of World War II. Veterans were returning home, and what did the Browns do but play for a championship 10 years in a row - four in the All-American Conference and six in the NFL. This was unprecedented and gave birth to a fervent fan base. Along came Art Modell and he fired one of the greatest coaches in NFL history. Then there was the little episode of Mr. Modell suing a group of local bar owners because they bought rotor antennas and could get blacked-out home games from Toledo.

Dr. Thomas Graham, head of the Curtis National Hand Center at Union Memorial Hospital and perhaps the nation's most prominent hand specialist, doesn't mean to keep his patient waiting. But he is on the phone with an NFL team, and two minutes before that it was an NHL team that called.
