Like last month, here’s this month’s update on travels, events, and articles (including a first for me!).
In my travels if you’re in the area and want to connect, contact me.
- Big news: my first article as lead author in a medical journal (right)! (In the world of medical journals, being listed as the first author is a big deal.)

- Do you use online symptom checkers? Go for it but be wise: Last Friday I was interviewed by the Boston Globe (see below) to comment on a new BMJ article. It was such a stimulating topic I wrote a much-mentioned post about it on e-patients.net, and I hope to be writing more
