KevinMD.com Named Finalist in 2008 Medical Weblog Awards
We all know when weíve stumbled onto a good blog. Like a favorite TV show, itís one of your daily or weekly rituals and you canít wait for the next installment in the saga. While there are tons of interesting topics out there, perhaps none are more interesting than an insiderís look at one of the USís most important industries Ė health care. That said, recognition of any kind in this industry is sure to be coveted by the masses. This month that recognition comes in the form of the 2008 Medical Weblog Awards. Top medical bloggers educate us and reach out to lift our awareness for certain causes all year long. In the end, however, only one can be named the winner.
In what some would call a fitting progression of events, one of the Webís most well-known health care blogs has been named a finalist. Dr. Kevin Pho of www.KevinMD.com, a primary care physician out of New Hampshire, has been blogging about the health care industry for nearly 5 years and is one of the longest-running blogs in the finalist line-up. Like many of the other medical bloggers, he has worked to put the spotlight on major industry issues and has followed health care reform. But unlike others, Dr. Pho has put a unique spin on medical blogging with his strong opinions, willingness to directly address public officials and a stirring look at the pitfalls of the industry.
So what makes KevinMD.com unique among medical blogs? One might quickly notice that even as a busy doctor, Kevin Pho manages to bring the blogosphere some of the most regular and compelling content out there. It has also become interesting to some to learn about the politics and business of western medicine from a doctorís perspective. The general public is used to doctors staying out of the limelight due to compliance and issues of confidentiality. But KevinMD.com has found a way to bring us an insider look at US health care in a way that anyone can appreciate. Being a primary care physician, Dr. Pho has also focused on educating the country at large about the importance of the primary care industry, the current shortage of primary care physicians, and a detailed look at how the health care reform ideas that are currently on the table will truly affect the health care industry.
ďIím honored to be in such esteemed company...Ē said Dr. Pho as he announced his nomination and finalist position on his blog. The winner of the 2008 Medical Weblog Awards, sponsored by Epocrates (www.epocrates.com), will receive a mobile medical software package worth $500 Ė a wonderful prize considering how necessary it is for physicians to have the most up-to-date information while on the go. Polls will remain open for a short time, expected to close Sunday, January 18th and midnight (EST). To cast your vote for the top medical weblog of 2008, visit www.medgadget.com
