Medbloggers & Fans: Join Us In Las Vegas, October 15

fastandfuriousOkay, I know this photo has nothing to do with BlogWorld/New Media Expo 09, but it is so cute I had to use it.

Besides there is no Nascar this week, so I had to get my fix somehow.

And I was up all yesterday blogging “fast and furryest”, emailing right and left, Tweeting the Good Tweet and generally spreading the the word about the Medblogger track.

Just in case someone missed the message! : )

Time has just flown by and what once was nine months out, then six months out and then four months out has come down to less than seven weeks.

********************

I am now blogging over at the BWE blog, as are all the panelists for the Medblogger track.  My first post is here.  Comments welcome!

There is the official logo.

If you have been on the fence about attending, it is not too late. The majority of those who register for BlogWord do so by the third week in September. Details are here, with links to registration.

The discount codes are still in effect.  The discounted rooms at the Venetian are still available.

Come for the day or stay for the weekend.  You can basically choose what you want, smorgasbord-style. I would suggest the whole weekend, though.  While the first day is all medblogger, the rest of the weekend will take you through the meat-and-potatoes of the art of blogging.

And, chances are, if you have a favorite non-med blogger that you follow, they will be there.

Any questions, any problems – email me.  I will either answer them or hook you up with someone who can.

This will be informative, educational….and a downright blast!

Hope to see you there!

The Spirit Of The Place: Samuel Shem’s New Book May Depress You

When I was in medical school I read Samuel Shem s House Of God as a right of passage. At the time I found it to be a cynical yet eerily accurate portrayal of the underbelly of academic medicine. I gained comfort from its gallows humor and it made me…

Eat To Save Your Life: Another Half-True Diet Book

I am hesitant to review diet books because they are so often a tangled mess of fact and fiction. Teasing out their truth from falsehood is about as exhausting as delousing a long-haired elementary school student. However after being approached by the authors’ PR agency with the promise of a…
