Clinical obesity, not morbid: A plea to change the diagnosis http://buff.ly/1hKihGL
A primary reason pediatricians fail to diagnose obesity is that they liken telling families their children are obese to delivering bad news.

The reason that we have hospital dependent patients http://buff.ly/1etegfk
I'm wondering if it is possible to end our love affair with medicine that defies death in our waning years.

Why so many Americans believe in health care conspiracy theories http://buff.ly/1hvMePJ
Perhaps it is not surprising that there is a lack of trust in the FDA.

In medical school, sometimes you have to curb your enthusiasm http://buff.ly/1hKih9I
Transitioning from preclinical to clinical student means no longer being at a safe distance from patient care, yet still maintaining professional distance.

Providers should be active in helping patients follow directions http://buff.ly/1hvM9LI
Can physicians do more than just hope and pray for best outcomes after they deliver directions to their patients?

Why do vaccines in particular give parents concern? http://buff.ly/1etegMj
Vaccine risk, compared with the risks of other medical interventions, causes particular concern among parents, and I am not sure why that is.

The population health benefits of EMR implementation done right http://buff.ly/1ne3g5a
Even if EMRs aren’t necessarily connected in U.S. as of this writing, this study shows what can be accomplished with thousands of different data points.

Social media's leading physician voice
Introduction

Dr. Kevin Pho is a board-certified internal medicine physician and founder of KevinMD.com, which Forbes called a "must-read health blog." Klout named him the web’s top social media influencer in health care and medicine, and CNN named @KevinMD one of its five recommended Twitter health feeds.

He is also co-author of the book, Establishing, Managing, and Protecting Your Online Reputation: A Social Media Guide for Physicians and Medical Practices.

Transforming his social media presence into a mainstream media voice, he has been interviewed on the CBS Evening News with Katie Couric, and his commentary regularly appears in USA Today, where he is a member of their editorial Board of Contributors, as well as CNN and the New York Times.  His opinion pieces highlight the challenges everyday doctors face, ranging from the primary care shortage to the epidemic of physician burnout.

His dual perspectives as a practicing physician and a health care social media leader contribute to his unique social media journey. He shares his story in keynotes nationwide, with audiences that include the PRSA Health Academy, Healthcare Internet Conference, Massachusetts Medical Society, American Academy of Otolaryngology, Texas Medical Association, the National Council for Community Behavioral Healthcare, PAINWeek, and New England Journal of Medicine.

Dr. Pho practices primary care in Nashua, NH.  He received his medical degree and completed residency at Boston University School of Medicine, and is a member of the New Hampshire Union Leader’s 2010 class of New Hampshire's 40 Under Forty.
