Change of Shift is up over at Emergiblog. This is the start of a new year (and with a new logo):
Welcome to Volume 3, Number 2 of Change of Shift!
New year, new logo!
I tried, I really tried, to make a logo that wasn’t blue but I just could not do it.
I just love blue on blogs!
Many thanks to all who have contributed this week, and to those who contributed but don’t realize it yet!
with Zippy, the lovable red lobster, to raise awareness and funds to support childhood brain cancer research over at FunWithZippy.com. He asked if we'd help support the effort and host the official "Fun With Zippy" t-shirt on our medical t-shirt site MedTees.com, for which we were only too happy to help out.
All proceeds from the sales of these shirts, button, aprons, mouse-pads, stickers and the like with Zippy's logo will support childhood brain cancer research.
Dr Anonymous' Blog Talk Radio show will be back on air this Thursday night! His guest this week will be Dr Theresa Chan whose blog is Rural Doctoring. It is a wonderful addition to the blogosphere. The show starts at 8 pm CST (or 1 am GMT). I hope you will join us.
Tips for first time Blog Talk Radio listeners (from Dr A):
For first time Blog Talk Radio listeners:
*Although it is not required to listen to the show, I encourage you to register on the BlogTalkRadio site prior to the show. I think it will make the process easier.
*To get to my show site, click here. As show time gets closer, keep hitting "refresh" on your browser until you see the "Click to Listen" button. Then, of course, press the "Click to Listen" button.
*You can also participate in the live chat room before, during, and after the show. Look for the "Chat Available" button in the upper right hand corner of the page. If you are registered with the BTR site, your registered name and picture will appear in the chat room.
*You can also call into the show. The number is on my show site. I'll be taking calls beginning at around the bottom of the hour. There is also a "Click To Talk" feature where you do not need a phone to call into the show - only a microphone headset. Hope these tips are helpful!
A nice post by Dr Val yesterday (though aren't they all nice)
I attended a lecture entitled, "Limb Labs: Getting Amputee Soldiers Back to Work After World War I." The lecture was held at the National Museum of Health and Medicine on the Walter Reed campus in Washington, DC. Both lecturers (Beth Linker and Jeffrey Reznick) did a wonderful job of transporting the audience back in time, outlining the cultural beliefs and historical context of the day. This is what I gleaned from their lectures:
Dr Wes will be doing a live on-line chat for an hour on August 6th, 2008 at 7PM CST. He recently did an hour-long radio show on atrial fibrillation (afib) with his colleague Dr. Jose Nazari, MD. The podcast is now up and can be listened to or download it here.
