I’ve been awfully busy these past few days that I haven’t been able to make the rounds of the medical blogs that I usually visit. But, hey, maybe you do have the time? Maybe you can have an hour or two of relaxation (which means free time to read more and more interesting med blogs)? Just go over at Dr. Enoch Choi’s blog, Doctor Geek, M.D. He’s hosting Grand Rounds this week!
Also the Medscape Pre-Rounds interview is already up (because I was the host of last week’s Grand Rounds, I got an interview from Dr. Nicholas Genes)! A shout out to Dr. Genes!
Here’s a snippet of the interview:
Contemplating Healthcare in the Philippines
Nicholas Genes, MD, PhD
Tess Termulo is a young, idealistic physician in the Philippines. She may be coming to the United States soon, but she’s already on the Web, chronicling her decisions and thoughts on medicine at Prudence, MD. A common theme in her work is remembering that doctors and patients are people first. I recently had the chance to learn more about the person behind “Prudence.”
Dr. Genes: How did you choose the pen name Prudence?
Dr. Termulo: Prudence is a pseudonym I started using when I joined high school essay contests, and I’ve been using it since then — in my journals, on a Web site I made before there were blogs, and, of course, I use the name when I’m posting and commenting on blogs. It’s from the name of the main character in the movie Stroke of Midnight, a modern Cinderella story. I remember being so fond of that movie that I used the name Prudence, and I’ve been using it every since as a pseudonym.
