Happy Thanksgiving

Tomorrow is American Thanksgiving. I have come to understand that this is a very big holiday for my friends south of the boarder. The long weekend seems to revolve around food, football and family. I wanted to take the time to say thank you to some of the American’s who are part of the SGEM Family. Without you this free open access to medical education (FOAM) initiative would not be so successful. The goal of the SGEM continues to be to cut the KT window down from over ten years to less than one year. It does this by providing a weekly high quality and clinically relevant critical review of a recent publication. Thank you for your dedication, passion and commitment. I have the pleasure of surrounding myself with talented people who care deeply about medical education. You share...

Happy American Thanksgiving to all the SGEM listeners from the USA. Click on this fun YouTube video featuring some of the BEEM members celebrating the holiday. According to the SGEM Facebook page 21% of likes are from USA.  TwitterMap App says 35% of my followers are from America. My blog does not generate this type of data.

Lest We Forget

In Flanders Field In Flanders fields the poppies blow Between the crosses, row on row, That mark our place; and in the sky The larks, still bravely singing, fly Scarce heard amid the guns below. We are the Dead. Short days ago We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow, Loved and were loved, and now we lie, In Flanders fields. Take up our quarrel with the foe: To you from failing hands we throw The torch; be yours to hold it high. If ye break faith with us who die We shall not sleep, though poppies grow In Flanders fields. John McCrae 1872-1918: Canadian poet, physician, author, artist and...
