Medical Weblog Awards honor Prof. Gary Schwitzer

Associate professor Gary Schwitzer's HealthNewsReview blog has been named a finalist in the sixth annual Medical Weblog Awards, sponsored by Epocrates.

Now almost four years old, with nearly 900 stories reviewed, HealthNewsReview.org has become a definitive source for the evaluation of claims about new health care treatments, tests, products and procedures. The Seattle Times said of the blog, "Schwitzer is one of the country's leading authorities on what's right and wrong about health coverage in the media." William Heisel of the Los Angeles Times wrote, "Gary Schwitzer is the professor that health reporters fear. With the creation of HealthNewsReview.org, he has brought back nightmares of having your work marked up in red and posted on a corkboard for everyone to see." Last fall, his blog was named one of 50 Excellent Public Health Blogs by RNCentral.com.

The polls are open! Vote for HealthNewsReview for Best Medical Weblog Voting closes at midnight (EST), Feb. 14.
