After a careful analysis and consideration, we are pleased to present the finalists of the seventh annual Medical Weblog Awards. But first, a few notes.
Voting will begin this coming Thursday, February 3, 2011 and will close 12 midnight on Sunday, February 13, 2011 (EST). We will have instructions, voting booths, and further details here at Medgadget.com on Thursday.
Epocrates® is generously donating the latest Apple iPod touch® to winners in each category, along with a subscription to the company’s most popular premium product for drug, disease, and lab information, Epocrates® Essentials clinical reference suite.
The grand prize winner in the Best Medical Weblog category will receive a brand new, top of the line Lenovo® Multi-Touch m90z ThinkCentre, an all-in-one model that Lenovo designed for professional use with medical applications strongly in mind. This powerful computer with a 23” full HD monitor was reviewed by Medgadget, and we were very impressed with its capabilities.
Additionally, the Best Medical Weblog category winner will receive Epocrates Online Premium reference, a premium drug and clinical reference for the web browser. Epocrates Online organizes practical, peer-reviewed drug and disease content with a unique patient-centered approach. The grand prize package is valued at over $2000.
And to wrap up the prizes, all winners will receive an annual subscription to the Placebo Journal, “The Only Medical Journal That Will Make You Laugh… On Purpose!” In the meantime, check out Placebo Journal’s blog.
We’d like to thank all the blogs for their participation in the contest and for the tremendous writing and reporting that they do throughout the year. Also thanks must be extended to all the readers of our blogs. Without you this would be a thankless job and all of us appreciate your interest and commentary.
And now, please meet the finalists!
