If you make the rounds of the blogosphere and the traditional media these days, you find lots of talk about health care. But it’s mostly abstract, and typically fixated on the politics of this or that plan.
However, there’s a whole other side to health care which isn’t seen or covered enough by traditional media or bloggers — the doctors, nurses, medical professionals and patients who actually are the health care system.
Blogs make it possible for these voices to be heard, and we’re very fortunate to have a great variety of blogs and bloggers to feature in this edition of Grand Rounds. These stories and these people need a more prominent place in the public mind, and I’m hopeful I can play a small part in that with this week’s edition.
