1. Will iodine and potassium iodide protect against radiation from Japan? Instead of spending time and money to find and purchase iodine, it’s much more useful to use those dollars and contribute to the Japan earthquake and tsunami relief efforts instead.

2. Why this medical student found primary care awesome, and boring. That’s why I found primary care to be boring. I could do it. As a 3rd year medical student.

3. Bullying among nurses needs to stop. I genuinely desire to bring to light an interesting conflict that has plagued the nursing profession for decades.

4. Japan earthquake and tsunami first hand physician account. An international ACEP member has been giving real-time updates to the ACEP Disaster Section about the developing situation in Japan.
