I began Citizen K. three years ago because I wanted to write about whatever I wanted to write about. I have made some wonderful friends in the process, and have enjoyed every minute of it. I've also learned and, I trust, honed my writing skills.
In the past several months, I've discovered something that I want to write about in particular. So, in the next couple of weeks, I'll be transitioning my efforts from Citizen K. to Health Matters, which I hope will serve as a forum for reasoned discourse about health care, ranging from policy to specific issues such as public health, health technology, health literacy, compensation, and overtreatment. In particular, I want to explore the health care systems of other nations with the idea of learning from them, something that Americans resist to near pathological degree. I invite you to join me.
Citizen K. will be around until the first of the year. Whatever you may have learned from me pales compared to what I have learned from you.
