So in this "fellowship" that i resigned from recently, I asked long time ago whether tail was covered.I was told yes. When I signed paperwork after resigining I was told that I'd be covered for the premium for the tail. When I was like what?! That's not what I was told. I was told that "it would be covered if I finished the fellowship." That seems shady and illegal. Obviously paying thousands of dollars for tail would be reasonable on an attending salary, but now it seems they are pissed I... Tail coverage

VerriAbstractWe now appreciate that the mechanism of resolution depends on an active and time-dependent biosynthetic shift from pro-inflammatory to pro-resolution mediators, the so-called specialized pro-resolving lipid mediators (SPMs). These SPMs are biosynthesized from the omega-3 fatty acids arachidonic acid (AA), eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA), docosapentaenoic acid (DPA), or docosahexaenoic acid (DHA).
