2004 Medical Weblog Awards

The 2004 Medical Weblog Awards
2004 Medblogs Awards

Today we would like to announce The 2004 Medical Weblog Awards which will honor the best of the medical blogosphere.

Voting for the awards will be open to all, but you will only be able to vote once (we control the polling software: so no hacking or cookie manipulation will be tolerated). Nominations are now accepted in the comment section of this post. You can nominate yourself or your favorite medical blog.

Nominations are open through most of December.

Update: nominations need to be in the comments of EchoJournal’s contest post (now conveniently linked), NOT this one.

Interesting article about how the pharma industry resists changes we know would help.
