As a physician and teacher I realize that the best way to better healthcare is to educate patients. My blogs while usually appropriate for healthcare personnel is to assist ordinary individuals navigate problems and issues that may have health consequences. I encourage my readers to feel free to send comments, questions and requests to my mailbox from the contact page.
I write about public policy issues because I recognise the health impact of some of these policies. I do realise that I may not always explain the links between these policies and health in my posts. I am however always ready to answer any questions on this on any ideas expounded in my posts.
