The CRB Wins Medical Weblog Award – Thanks For Your Support

DrRich | February 17th, 2011 - 7:10 am

It was announced yesterday that the Covert Rationing Blog has won the 2010 Medical Weblog Award in the category of Health Policy and Ethics.

I am deeply gratified and humbled to have won this award, particularly given the high quality of the other nominees this year. Thanks to MedGadget for hosting the awards this year (and every year) in their unfailingly professional manner – and for deciding not to banish me from the competition, given my unusually boorish behavior in this same competition last year.*

And thanks most especially to those of you who read this blog, and still saw fit to go out of your way to cast your vote for the CRB. It is only thanks to all of you that I have not become the Susan Lucci of the medical blogosphere.

*I took advantage of my finalist status last year to publicly challenge another finalist (whose official policy on medical ethics I found to be troublesome) to an on-line “Medical Ethics Smack Down,” and did so in a manner which they could not graciously ignore. The resulting spectacle might have soured the opinion of a less forgiving Medical Weblog Award host – and so hats off to MedGadget for its liberal outlook on the behavior of its nominees.
