Your News Delivered: 5 Top Daily Digital News Digests
Jan. 15, 2016
Staying well informed about current events and the topics that affect the world around us is a responsibility we all share.
As a busy college student pursuing a health care career, though, you may not have an abundance of time to spend keeping up with the daily news.
In addition to being under a time crunch, the Internet is littered with hoaxes and satrical news sites that may feed us seemingly legitimate stories. Here are some of the top daily digest sites that make it easier to stay on top of the local, national and world news.
1. THE SKIMM
If you normally think the news is boring and the thought of keeping up on it just for the sake of your health care career sounds less than appealing, The Skimm is the site you want to see.
The Skimm is a digest of stories delivered to your email inbox every day, but the conversational writing style is what makes it a fun read.
2. USA TODAY
The USA Today is the standard newspaper found outside hotel room doors for a good reason: it’s a great way to start the day with an overview of what’s happening in the world. Sign up for one of the USA Today newsletters and you won’t miss a beat.
3. NEED 2 KNOW
This news digest site is short and to the point. With great summaries of the day’s most important news, The Need 2 Know newsletters will give you the facts you need to know and let you quickly get on about your day.
With a mix of hard political news and a bit about business, technology, and entertainment, these headlines will give you the basics.
4. MEDICAL NEWS TODAY
When you’re pursuing a health care career, keeping up with the latest news in the medical field is a must.
The last thing you want to do is damage your credibility with patients or employers by not knowing about the latest health care developments.
Medical News Today has been bringing readers up-to-the-minute information about the latest developments in health care every day since 2003.
5. YAHOO! NEWS DIGEST
Yahoo! was one of the earliest sites on the Internet back in 1995 — possibly even since before you were born. You can rely on a site that has been around for that long because it has staying power for a reason.
The Yahoo! News Digest not only keeps you up to date on all the current news, it also does so in an attractive, easy to read format. In fact, the digest even won a design award from Apple.
With so many great sites on the web that make it easy for you to quickly find out all the latest news about what’s going on in the world, there’s no reason to remain uninformed.
As a citizen who likely wants to make a difference in the world through your health care career, news digests make it easy for you to learn about the world before you go out and serve it.
