Exciting developments in 2015!
Absolutely Maybe at PLOS Blogs Network
Third Opinion at MedPage Today
I'm delighted to announce that from January, Statistically Funny's sister blog, Absolutely Maybe, will become part of the terrific PLOS Blog Network - bringing my writing about scientific evidence and uncertainties into sync at last with my commitment to open access and the great Public Library of Science.
I'm also very excited to join the wonderful team led by Ivan Oransky at MedPage Today, who keep health care professionals up-to-date with news on issues important to their lives and clinical practice - as well as being a trusted source of continuing medical education. I expect to learn a lot from them. It's a great opportunity to talk about topical clinical research results - and my longstanding interest in communication with patients.
And I'll be indexing my cartoons into a searchable open gallery to help people find and download cartoons - with a centralized point to tie all the pieces together.
Many thanks for your interest and support. People have now spent more than a full year altogether reading my posts! It's a great privilege - and I hope you find even more of interest in the year ahead.
