I love the TED video E-Patient Dave references here -- important to see -- and applying this idea to health is a powerful glimpse of the already-arriving future

It's a great way to end the year. My Wired magazine article on how we should let robots take over our jobs earned a "year's best magazine article" shoutout by New York Times' David Brooks.

Let every child's first grain be a whole grain.
Introduction

Alan Greene, MD, FAAP

As a father of four himself, Dr. Greene has devoted himself to freely giving real answers to parents' real questions -- from questions about those all too common childhood conditions to those that address the most rare childhood illnesses. His answers combine cutting edge science, practical wisdom, warm empathy, and a deep respect for parents, children, and the environment. He is also an electrifying public speaker, and has personally touched many during his talks in North America, Europe, Asia, and the Middle East.

Dr. Greene is a graduate of Princeton University and the University of California at San Francisco. Upon completion of his pediatric residency program at Children's Hospital Medical Center of Northern California he served as Chief Resident.  He entered primary care pediatrics in January 1993. He is now a Clinical Professor of Pediatrics at Stanford University School of Medicine, an Attending Pediatrician at Packard Children's Hospital, and a Senior Fellow at the University California San Francisco Center for the Health Professions.

Dr. Greene is the President of the Board of the Society for Participatory Medicine, he is a member of the Board of Directors for The Organic Center, and on the Board of Healthy Child Healthy World.  He is a founding partner of the Collaborative on Health and the Environment. He also consults for the Environmental Working Group.

In 1995, he launched DrGreene.com, cited by the AMA as “the pioneer physician Web site” on the Internet. His award-winning site receives over 50 million hits a month from parents, concerned family members, students, and healthcare professionals.  In addition to being the founder of DrGreene.com, he is the Chief of Future Health for A.D.A.M., Inc. a leading publisher of interactive health information.  Dr. Greene has been recognized by Advance for Health Information Executives as one of the “Top 25 Most Influential Forces in Healthcare IT” and was named the Children's Health Hero of the Internet by Intel.

Dr. Greene has served as both President and Board Chair of Hi-Ethics (Health Internet Ethics), the non-profit organization formed to address privacy, advertising and content quality issues for Internet health consumers. He has also served as an advisor to URAC for both their inaugural and their updated health web site accreditation program. He is a founding member of the e-Patient Scholars Working Group, and a founding board member of the Center for Information Therapy.

Dr. Greene is a regular columnist for Kiwi Magazine, and is an online Pediatric Expert for AmericanBaby.com and HealthyKids.com -- in addition to his own award-winning website. He is also the Pediatric Expert for The People’s Pharmacy (as heard on NPR). He was the original Pediatric Expert for both Yahoo! and iVillage.

Dr. Greene is the author of Raising Baby Green (Wiley, 2007), From First Kicks to First Steps (McGraw-Hill, 2004), The Parent's Complete Guide to Ear Infections (People's Medical Society, 1997), and a co-author of The A.D.A.M. Illustrated Family Health Guide (A.D.A.M., Inc., 2004). He is the medical expert for three additional books, The Parent's Soup A-to-Z Guide to Your New Baby, (Contemporary Books, 1998) The Parent's Soup A-to-Z Guide to Your Toddler, (Contemporary Books, 1999), and The Mother of All Baby Books, (Hungry Minds, Inc., 2002).

Dr. Greene is a frequent keynote speaker at important events such as IFOAM 2008 (International Federation of Organic Agriculture Movements), held in Modena Italy, the first European Internet health conference, held in Maastricht, the first International eHealth Association Conference, held in Jeddah, and the largest e-Healthcare World Conference, held in Las Vegas, and the first Green Power Baby Shower, held in Hollywood. Dr. Greene also appears frequently on TV, radio, websites, and in newspapers and magazines around the world, including such venues as the TODAY Show, Fox and Friends, GMA-Now, The New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, USA Today, Time Magazine, Parade, Parenting, Parent, Child, Baby Talk, Working Mother, Real Simple, and the Reader's Digest.

Dr. Greene was named a "Community Hero" for his heroism during the 1989 Loma Prieta earthquake and selected to carry the Olympic Torch in the 1996 Centennial Olympic Torch Relay.

He loves to think about challenging ideas, he only eats certified organic, wild, or home grown foods, and he wears green socks.
