When I was contemplating hosting Grand Rounds, did I realize that I was hosting a compilation of serious interdisciplinary dialogue relating to the practice of health care?
Did I understand the enormity of the task I had chosen to undertake?
Heck yes I did!
I chose to use a “Napoleon Dynamite” theme anyway as that is pretty much the coolest movie ever made.
If you’ve seen it, you’ll get it. If you haven’t, you’ll think I’m nuts (but I have great nunchuk skills….)!
So grab your coffee, and get ready for a good read!
Or, as Napoleon’s Grandma says, “just make yourself a dang quesa-dilluh!”
Welcome to Grand Rounds…

Dr. Willem Johan (Pim) Kolff, one of the most prolific inventors of new medical devices, has passed away at age 97 in Philadelphia. Dr Kolff led a long and productive life, and through his genius he saved and greatly improved the lives of thousands of others. From external dialysis machines to the CardioWest artificial heart, Dr Kolff was one of the revolutionaries that successfully introduced practical devices to the medical world.
On Saturday, February 28, from 2-5 p.m. the NMHM will host a Knitting for Marines charity event to make and distribute helmet liners to Marines stationed in Iraq and Afghanistan. The liners help to protect our Marines and keep them warm during the harsh winters in these countries.
If you don't know how to knit in the round, this is a great time to learn. Instructors will be on site to help you through the project. If you are an experienced knitter and wish to get an early start on the project, you may download the knitting pattern.
2/26: Co-host Dr. Gwenn
3/5: Podcamp Ohio
3/19: Trauma Junkie
