Health Care blog review and discussion, starting with a philosophical overview of Family Medicine from Ian Mc Whinney, MD's writings.  Patient blogs Dr Fatty Finds Fitness and Pissed Off Patient are next followed by the physician blog of Howard Brody, MD, PhD on financing and publishing medical research.

Myths about Grief with great comments about mourning is next.  Then a special focus on depression includes Antidepressants During Pregnancy and medications for treating major and minor depression, their side effects and cessation if indicated from the American Psychiatric Association. 

Dr Jonas then overviews a project on the journey from lay perspective to professional perspectives about depression in the training of medical students and residents.  Janet Wasylyshen, MS3 (now Med-Peds Dr), Larry Bauer, MSW, MEd and Dr Jonas did the project over ten years ago, but it's still accurate information.  Discussion includes comments about past, present and future health care issues and system changes.  Human centering in health care and patient-physician relationships are a component of the reviews.
