Health Wonk Review #32

May 17th, 2007 by Julie Ferguson

A new issue of Health Wonk Review is posted at Health Care and Marketplace Review and is awaiting your perusal. The host blog’s author, Robert Laszewski, is a welcome addition to the health blogosphere. Our friend Joe Paduda calls him “one of the most intelligent, insightful, and articulate observers and critics of the US health care system” and since Joe is no slouch himself, we are inclined to believe him. When you are done sampling the wonk world, be sure to stop back and poke around the nooks and crannies of Robert’s blog.
As usual, Health Wonk Review has a variety of interesting posts from the health care policy crowd. Among the roster of posts, I was surprised to see one from Pioneering Ideas, a blog from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. It seems they have had an active blog since about last October. Another welcome addition to the blogosphere.
And speaking of new blogs, we are also happy to see the debut of Dr. J’s Jottings from Dr. Jennifer Christian, a friend and respected colleague of Lynch Ryan. We’ve talked about her work before, most recently in citing her leadership role in the American College of Occupational and Environmental Medicine’s important new guideline on the topic of Stay at Work / Return to Work. She’s not a stranger to the online world by any means – she hosts the lively and active Work Fitness and Disability Roundtable.
We’re delighted to see all these smart people adding their voices to the collective discussions in the blog world.
