'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

The Richard King Mellon Foundation has given West Penn Allegheny Health System's Simulation Teaching and Academic Research Center a $350,000 grant to expand its educational programs in surgical simulation and emergency medical services.

Medical students at the center use simulation to practice clinical skills in a risk-free environment prior to performance on real patients.

The grant will be used to develop a simulated surgical center/ operating room and to provide simulation training for emergency medical service providers, the health system said.
