A new study finds black patients are more likely to die after their heart bypass surgery if they're at a hospital where some care teams see mostly white patients and others see mostly black patients. On the other hand, mortality rates are comparable between black and white patients after heart bypass surgery when the teams of health care providers at their hospitals all care for patients of all races.

Though legislative reform is necessary to combat the growing burden of student loan debt in the U.S. on a grand scale, individual borrowers can take steps to repay their loans with as low long-term costs as possible. A new mathematical model develops a strategy for minimizing the overall cost of repaying student loans.
