Default Switching from Life/Annuity

I am switching over to the healthcare industry after about 8-9 years in the individual life and annuity segment. I start my new job in about a month so wondering what some good resources are so I can start to get up to speed on all things healthcare. Any suggestions? Thanks!

I definitely researched the industry. Iím asking about more detailed/technical resources such as textbooks, etc.
