Top posts of 2016

By | December 30, 2016

The year 2016 was a big one for The Medical Care Blog: in February, we moved from our old publisher-hosted location and launched this new domain and design. We’ve published 61 posts here since then – a little more than one a week. We’ve added many new contributors and broadened our audience. Thank you for reading!

We’d like to take this opportunity to thank our sponsor–the Medical Care section of the American Public Health Association–and our editorial and publishing colleagues at Medical Care, without whom this blog would not exist. Note: Every time we write about a Medical Care journal article on this blog, the publisher sets it free for 30 days!
