Friday Links: Health Blogs Edition
I really don’t sit around reading about asthma and children’s health all day long, and one of these days you’ll see that for yourself when I share some of my non-medical favorites.
Just not today.
In no particular order, some valuable non-asthma health blogs:
Dr. Gwenn Is In
The personal side of pediatric medicine distilled through a blog. Dr. Gwenn breaks down children’s health news and *shares ideas* about everything from old-fashioned cold remedies to the effects of wind chill temperature on kids. She’s a parent, too, and relates her own experiences to the broader subject of pediatrics.
Practical tips and advice from the New York Times’ Tara Parker-Pope. While the site doesn’t address children specifically, Pope often covers pediatric issues like the growth of teen cyber-bullies and healthy changes for playgrounds. She writes about healthy decisions for adults, too. Interested in reasoned, researched information about non-medical ways to live well? Start here.
Running a Hospital
Next up, the blog of Paul Levy, president and CEO of Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston.
Sound corporate? Don’t worry, it’s not. This is thoughtful, enlightening, accessible writing about hospital administration, health care, and so much more.
As always, Friday Links are permanent sidebar additions.
