To colleagues at the University of Alabama facilities in Huntsville and Birmingham, Robert M. Centor, FACP, is a respected academician and administrator, serving as associate dean of the Huntsville regional medical campus, director of general internal medicine in Birmingham and attending at the Birmingham VA Hospital.
But to hundreds of Web surfers, Dr. Centor is the "DB" of "DB’s Medical Rants," a Web log—or blog—he created in 2002 to broadcast his views on health care and medicine far beyond traditional academia.
And, I’d add my congrats to Kevin’s!
