I often find it hard to tout my own accomplishments, so I’m happy to report that Dave Dykeman, a colleague and friend, nominated me for the Massachusetts Medical Law Report’s Rx for Excellence Leaders in Quality award. After what I’m told was careful consideration, I was selected as one of the people to receive this award – in part because of the success and substance of this blog.
I’m very honored to be included with the other distinguished awardees – including Atul Gawande, my old Congressional colleague. (You can see write ups of the awardees here.) And I hope that their decision is not only in recognition of our past achievements, but a vote of confidence for our accomplishments yet to come.
There is also a short video clip of some of the winners – don’t blink at the beginning or you’ll miss me. And on Friday, October 31st there is an awards ceremony in Boston. (This should be a great event.)
Well, enough about me. Next week back to more about health policy issues, including issue advertising around the presidential campaign – something I’ve been watching for several months now.
