Working in a large academic medical center in one of the nation’s most popular cities, New York, I’ve access to happenings in healthcare at such a rapid pace that it is impossible to keep up.  So, how does the layman keep up with the healthcare reform, new regulations, new medical procedures and clinical studies?  I hope to chronicle some of the week’s top medical and healthcare issues in these columns, which will hopefully help some folks.  Also included will be general medical/health posts.  I am a foodie and cannot resist posting some healthy recipes occasionally.  I am not sure how often I’ll blog, may be a weekly post or sometimes two or three posts if time permits.   Hope you will enjoy the ride.

June 2, 2012

It was in October 2011 that I began blogging with the intention of posting health/medical posts, and knew I would post recipes as well.  Well, it has been quite a ride with many bloggers following my blog and commenting on my posts.  Interestingly, the healthcare/medical posts were least read and commented upon when I did write about healthcare.  Now, the name of my blog seems irrelevant and so I must change the name of the blog – not yet sure what I’ll call it.  Stay tuned….and thank you for stopping by.

    Thank you so much in commenting on my site. I took a look at your site…and loved the picture of your black and white cat. Also your food looked so yummy. Brownies are my downfall….but I probably should not say that to a health professional.

    Do you want me to place you on my notification list when I write? If so, write me at and give me your email address . Have a wonderful day. Nancy

    Hello Shaanthz,
    Nice blog even though its quite difficult to find healthcare updates in your posts. Ya, you are probably right to have the idea of changing the blog title. What about… ummm…oh no, I suddenly remember that I’m bad in giving name :mrgreen:
    By the way, happy blogging…
