    Congratulations to Pia Christensen, Andrew van Dam, and all of those who have contributed to Covering Health. Thanks to their efforts, it’s been a year of scoops, curation, context, and everything else you would expect from a top-notch blog.

    But don’t just take the words of someone whose name appears at #6 on this list (speaking of the kind of full disclosure Covering Health would demand):

    “a good place to find out what our colleagues are writing, to get story ideas, sources, and help, and links to other articles you might have missed”

    Kudos, and keep up the great work!
