Shout Outs

Dr. Dino, Musings of a Dinosaur, is the host for this week’s  Grand Rounds.  You can read this week’s edition here (photo credit).

Ah, fall. That wonderful season when the heat recedes, the leaves descend, the children go back to school…and the pennant races heat up. Once again this year my Phillies are in the thick of it, so as the host of Grand Rounds I avail myself of the privilege of dragging you all down to the ballpark with me.  ……

Kim, Emergiblog, is the host of the latest edition of Change of Shift (Vol 5, No 5) which is in its 5th year!   You can find the schedule and the COS archives at Emergiblog. (photo credit)

Welcome to Change of Shift!

Boy, that was a fast two weeks!

For those who don’t follow me on Facebook, I’m a little slow on the computer front as I am recovering from Lasik – please excuse any typos that have made it through my blurry proof-read.

Also – I have discount codes for BlogWorld/New Media Expo 10, so if you are planning on attending the second annual Social Health track (and you should!!), shoot me an email via the “Contact” button. Details can be found up top under the “BlogWorld” button!

Time to dive in…

Check out these medical postage stamps found over at Street Anatomy

Above is …. a series of 3 stamps for the New Zealand Post, that portrayed New Zealand Innovations. Carly Hitchcock created these medical stamps ….  Cool work!

I love that plastic surgery connection:  Harold Gillies.
