We're talking medicine & health news stories on this week's Doctor Anonymous Show. Probably the most interesting medical news story this week has to do with Connie Culp who revealed herself during a press conference that she was the recipient of the first face transplant in the US which occurred almost 6 months ago. Our good friend Ramona also wrote a post about this event this week.
In other news, there was also a story about a double hand transplant in Georgia. I'll also share an interesting story about the swine/H1N1 flu and even share an interesting blog post about medical apps on the iPhone. If there is any time left, I'll also share some more thoughts on my recent trip to Chicago. Have you seen the latest videos? They are over on my Facebook Fan Page. (Also check out the fabulous new promo for the show above)
Thanks to all of you who checked out last week's show talking about the swine flu. As you can see from the graphic below, the show was the third most popular show in the health category last week - Thanks to all of you! I really appreciate it.
If you are new to the show, I encourage you to catch us live. There is a great chat room that also goes on. You can even see my shining face on the webcam. In addition, you can call into the show to say hello. Can't catch us live? That's ok. You can listen anytime after the show as it is saved as a podcast so you can listen later.
For first time Blog Talk Radio listeners:
*Although it is not required to listen to the show, I encourage you to register on the BlogTalkRadio site prior to the show. I think it will make the process easier.
*To get to my show site, click here. As show time gets closer, keep hitting "refresh" on your browser until you see the "Play/Chat" button. Then, of course, press the "Play/Chat" button.
*You can also participate in the live chat room before, during, and after the show. Look for the green "Chat Now" button. If you are registered with the BTR site, your registered name and picture will appear in the chat room.
*You can also call into the show. The number is on my show site. If you have a headset microphone, you can "call" into the show by looking for the "Click To Talk" button at the top of the chat box to try out the BTR VoIP option. Hope these tips are helpful!
