Houekeeping Note

HOUSEKEEPING NOTE….Starting on Monday, I’ll be joined on the blog by Shannon Brownlee, author of the upcoming book Overtreated: Why Too Much Medicine Is Making Us Sicker and Poorer. Shannon will be guest blogging for the next week on various medical topics, and hopefully giving us a preview of her book at the same time. Healthcare blogging is one of our regular fixtures here, so this should be fun for everyone. I hope you enjoy it.

The Washington Monthly was founded in 1969 to tell the stories of how government really works—and how to make it work better. Fifty years later, the need for incisive analysis and new, progressive policy ideas is clearer than ever. As a nonprofit, we rely on support from readers like you.
