Expect some short posts today – I’m at our Rural Health Journalism Workshop in Kansas City and I hope to post some about that. In the meantime, here are some links of interest:
- The U.K.’s Guardian is looking for suggestions for their list of the “sharpest, funniest, most fascinating science blogs.” They already list some that are worth a look – take a look and then let them know what your essential science blogs are.
- The New York Times has published a piece about the Dartmouth Atlas, “Critics question study cited in health debate.”
- NPR’s Shots blog, “Despite Evidence, Patients Want More Health Care,” looks at a Health Affairs survey of more than 1,500 patients that found people believe that more care and newer care is better, despite the efforts of many experts to explain that isn’t necessarily true. (Reminder: AHCJ members get free access to Health Affairs.)
