My friend Jim Mandell, CEO of Children's Hospital Boston, sends me notice of a new blog:
Last week, Children's Hospital Boston launched the first health and science blog from a pediatric hospital in the country. Called Thrive, it will cover breaking pediatric news at Children’s, as well as commentary about issues or new treatments in pediatric care that would benefit from our expert opinion.
Blog entries include a link to an interview with Children’s pediatrician Judy Palfrey, MD, the president-elect of the American Academy of Pediatrics, about how health reform might impact children. Last week, there were entries on our autism research and the NIH’s new stem cell guidelines, a wonderful posting from a parent whose child benefited from treatment for a rare disorder and a commentary from David Ludwig, MD, PhD, director of Children's Optimal Weight for Life Program, about how federal stimulus funding could be used to improve the health of all Americans.
