New Column in First Impressions about Google health

Today I got my first article published in > Diabetes. The column will be called "Diabetes Hacker" and will look at web-based technologies and how they can be used to help us in the management of our diabetes.

I am super-excited about this opportunity!!! The first article was about Google Health. Check it out:

I made a reference in the article to the discussion we had about this service a few weeks ago and also referenced the valuable resource that Scott Strumello posted a while back, called Patient Privacy Rights.
