Just when I thought that the free web can’t get any better with consumer health information, here comes a new venture, launched only a month ago, Medpedia! According to a recent article in the Chronicle of Higher Education, Medpedia is not your generic kind of user-generated wiki, but rather a major collaborative online project based on content from experts with an M.D. or a Ph.D. in a biomedical field. Adding to its reputation, the web site has already received the backing of leading medical schools such as Harvard Medical School, Stanford School of Medicine, the University of California at Berkeley School of Public Health, and the University of Michigan Medical School, as well as the National Institutes of Health, the American College of Physicians, and several other organizations.
And with this piece of news, I would like to wish you all a relaxing, healthy Spring break! We’ll be back in the beginning of April with more exciting news, this time about the future direction of our ConXn blog. So, please stay tuned!
