OK, you guys know this stuff. But here I’m with Dr. Steve Edelman and CWD founder Jeff Hitchcock speaking up diabetes on the Internet. (Note: Don’t mind my left eyebrow, which looks extremely odd — what do you expect without expert makeup & hair support?)
Btw, did anyone catch this week’s introduction of this New York Times new online column “Doctor and Patient,” by Dr. Pauline W. Chen? Chen is a liver transplant and cancer surgeon, that “has treated some of the medical system’s sickest patients. And she’s seen firsthand the growing rift between doctors and patients has hurt patient care.” Her initial column, about how “more and more Americans feel disconnected from their doctors,” garnered countless reader comments, via the NYT Well website. Doctors and patients “have lost the capacity to converse thoughtfully with one another,” Chen writes.
We patients knew that already. That’s why it’s so critical for all of us to feel attached to every other via the Internet. Roger?
