Thank you, New Hampshire Union Leader; and new reader welcome

Thank you to the New Hampshire Union Leader for naming me to the 2010 class of New Hampshire’s 40 Under Forty. (available print only, not online yet)

It’s a tremendous honor, and I’m deeply humbled.

I’d also like to welcome new readers to who may have caught my columns last week in the USA Today and the New York Times’ Room for Debate blog, along with an appearance this past Sunday on Radio Rounds.

I update the blog several times daily, not only including my own perspective on breaking medical issues, but also those of other health professionals who may offer contrasting opinions.

I invite you to find out more about me and read my other opinion pieces, or continue the conversation on Twitter ( and Facebook (

Thank you for visiting, and I sincerely appreciate your readership.
