Just what every non-MD fantasizes about: hosting a Grand Rounds! Ok, ok, it’s not the kind of grand rounds in a hospital where I get to impart my vast medical knowledge to other healthcare professionals (a good thing, too, given that the initials after my name are MS [master of science in biomedical writing] not MD). Instead, it’s the Grand Rounds for GetBetterHealth, a blog site for all things medical/health related. Grand Rounds is a weekly summary of the best health blog posts on the Internet.
What this means is that I will post a blog here (that will be carried on Get Better Health and other sites), aggregating the best blog postings in the health/medical field that week. For my Grand Rounds–which will appear Tuesday, June 22, 2010–-I’d like to focus on a subject near and dear to my heart: customer service in healthcare (you can read a post on the topic here).
So if you’re interested in having your blog on this topic promoted (or you write an awesome health/medical-related blog and want me to feature it), email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org. Put Grand Roundsin the subject line and give me a one-paragraph description of your blog. You’ll have a better shot at being highlighted if you can share a blog post on customer services in healthcare, but simply having a great, well-written, blog that deals with some aspect of healthcare and/or medicine will also get you a listing and a link in the Grand Rounds. Other rules:
- One entry per blogger
- Recent posts between 400 and 1000 words are preferred
- Posts are to be written for a general audience
Looking forward to seeing what you come up with!
