Medicine in Film Blog

We uncovered another gem at “Medflix: The Humane Medicine and Film Blog” where the author, presumably David Elpern as we were unable to locate the “About” page or other back ground information and we are not on Google+, offers mini reviews of movies related to medicine.

Take some time to read some of his reviews by clicking here.

Health & Humanity Debate Event

Our compatriots across the pond at the Centre for Humanities Blog posted a call for papers by EES Social Science & Medicine.

EES Social Science & MedicineAccording to the submission website:

“Social Science & Medicine provides an international and interdisciplinary forum for the dissemination of research findings, reviews and theory in all areas of common interest to social scientists, health practitioners and policy makers. The journal publishes material relevant to any aspect of health from a wide range of social science disciplines (eg. anthropology, economics, geography, psychology, social epidemiology, social policy and sociology), and material relevant to the social sciences from any of the professions concerned with physical and mental health, and with health care practice, policy and organization. It is particularly keen to publish findings or reviews which are of general interest to an international readership.”
