One day, when she was 14 and feeling ill, Daylesha Brown's mother took her to a Baltimore hospital and did not return for her. Child Protective Services (CPS) placed her in a group home and she was forced to move to other homes for the next three years.

So last year when Brown discovered her daughter, Sa-Maji, had lead poisoning, a lingering problem in Baltimore where the rate of poisoning among children is nearly twice the national average, she was wary that she would lose her child to CPS because of her transient lifestyle. She wanted to spare her child the misfortunes she had experienced.

Department of Health and Human Services are investigating four reports of a woman posing as a child protective services employee in Omaha trying to get into homes in the last two weeks. A fifth incident was reported in Holdrege.

The woman was not given permission to enter the homes after she was unable to provide identification. She stated she wanted to talk to the parent. "Incidents of people posing as DHHS employees are a serious concern," said CEO Courtney Phillips. "All DHHS employees carry a state-issued, DHHS photo identification badge and can provide a name and number to call to verify their employment."

The child welfare system is a necessary and under-appreciated part of health and human services. Their job is to keep our children safe, and there's no more important work than that.

In an op-ed in today's New York Times, Emma S. Ketteringham, the managing director of the family defense practice at the Bronx Defenders, puts the spotlight on an issue that is uncomfortable to acknowledge, but must be talked about.

Steady improvements in American life expectancy have stalled, and more Americans are dying at younger ages. But for companies straining under the burden of their pension obligations, the distressing trend could have a grim upside.

If people don't end up living as long as they were projected to just a few years ago, their employers ultimately won't have to pay them as much in pension and other lifelong retirement benefits. In 2015, the American death rate-the age-adjusted share of Americans dying-rose slightly for the first time since 1999. And over the last two years, at least 12 large companies, from Verizon to General Motors, have said recent slips in mortality improvement have led them to reduce their estimates for how much they could owe retirees by upward of a combined $9.7 billion, according to a Bloomberg analysis of company filings.

Sierra Riddle hands a vape pen to her son, 7-year-old Landon Riddle, on July 10. Landon was diagnosed with an aggressive form of leukemia as a toddler and became the youngest patient in the United States to receive a medical marijuana card.

When Sierra Riddle stormed into the conference room at Denver's child protective services office, the director of the agency was seated there, along with her son's team of doctors, top administrators from the Children's Hospital Colorado oncology department and lawyers. She recalls looking one of the physicians in the eye, defiant. "I'm done with this shit," she remembers saying. "I'm done with you guys bullying us."
