Thoughts from the ASN

March 9, 2011

The American Society of Nephrology (ASN) provides a lot of value for my membership buck.

ASN leads the fight against kidney disease by educating health professionals, sharing new knowledge, advancing research, and advocating the highest quality care for patients.

This week they sent around videos discussing the efforts at Johns Hopkins to transform the Welch Medical Library into a virtual facility. The co-evolution of print and electronic media is a hot topic in every field, not just medicine or nephrology. When I was asked if I would like to share the videos here, I jumped at the chance.

So get your popcorn and enjoy some thoughts about the curation of medical information.
