Broward Health has agreed to pay Ryan Tannehill, quarterback for the Miami Dolphins, $100,000 or more a year to let the hospital system use his name and photo, the Broward Bulldog reports. The hospital system said it’s a good marketing deal, but some question the use of taxpayer dollars. 

Originally founded in December 2006 as an independent grassroots publication dedicated to coverage of health issues in Florida, Health News Florida was acquired by WUSF Public Media in September 2012.
