Health Affairs, considered by many to be the preeminent journal on health policy issues, launches their blog today as another way to engage people in the conversations and debates. From their release:
At the outset, Health Affairs plans to experiment with the blog. Content will come both from Health Affairs editors and outside experts. Some posts will be stand-alone commentaries on news items or other issues. Other posts will be clustered around a hot topic. For example, on the blog’s first day, Health Affairs contributing editor James Robinson will offer his thoughts on the book Redefining Health Care by Michael Porter and Elizabeth Olmstead Teisberg. Subsequent days will feature posts on the book from Uwe Reinhardt, Alain Enthoven, Alan Maynard, and others.
As I can count on two hands the number of public health-oriented sites in the blogosphere, it's a pleasure to welcome them! And for those of you looking to expand your social marketing library, here's the article Social Marketing and Public Health by Walsh et al from 1993 (a classic reference in my book).
Any other early adopters from the public health establishment in the wings?
