The Cream rises to the Top

Each day as I search for fresh material for Health Train Express I have no shortage of articles and/or topics that strike me as important.

Like my readers we are all struck by the quantity and quality of well written articles that could fill an entire edition of a daily newspaper such as the WSJ, the LA Times, or the Washington Post to  just name a few of the dying breed of print publications, slowly being replaced by a digitized news world.

One of my favorite sources is always KevinMD. His blog now is mostly filled by other bloggers. This may not be a bad thing, since his blog is so well known. If your article is selected by KevinMD it has a very good chance of being read by other aggregators as well.  Kevin was an early and successful example of someone who recognized the sea-change in medical communications.  One of his recent articles by Neil Baum MD

Doctors: 10 lessons from the humble bumblebee

     This article by Dr Baum is 'spot on"  and describes the multi-tasking physicians must do to suceed in their goals. The exciting part is that Social Media and other network connectivity empowers doctors to do this quite successfully with little additonal help and/or overhead.

     This post by Gene Uzawa Dorio MD addresses the real and growing interference in quality health care by insurers and government. The stories are heart-rending. How do we stop this? 

     Finally in this post by medical student Nathaniel Nolan, questions, "will I have a job?" That is a bit like the question at this time of year, "Is there a Santa Claus?  Is the answer "Imaginary"?

Remember today is the 70th anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor
