Greetings from San Francisco, where I am attending the American College of Physicians 2013 Scientific Program, their annual conference covering the latest progress in internal medicine. Though the conference is obviously geared for physicians, I've compiled below a half dozen points from the various lectures that I think might be of interest to patients. Feel free to skim, and if you want to learn more about any point, follow the links.
Finally, I was pleasantly surprised to find that many of the studies that were highlighted by the professors were ones I wrote about over the year. Reviewing the literature has helped me understand the studies, and composing the posts in non-technical language has helped me remember the key points. There is no better way to learn than to teach. Thank you for reading.
