ACP Advocate blog cited as best health policy/ethics Weblog
Date:2/22/2010

Washington The ACP Advocate Blog by Bob Doherty was cited at the conclusion of voting last week as "the Best Health Policies/Ethics Weblog of 2009" in the 2009 Medical Blog Awards. The announcement of the winners noted that "while representing The American College of Physicians (ACP) on societal and public policy issues, [Robert B.

Doherty has waded through the controversies surrounding the issues to illuminate for his readers what the real impact of various health care reform proposals could be.
