Hello, medical bloggers, friends, and readers. That weekly compilation of happenings in the health care blogosphere that we affectionately call "Grand Gr_icon_88x312_1 Rounds" will be hosted here at DiabetesMine.com next Tuesday. Pre-Rounds is a new series of interviews with the host bloggers, published on Medscape.com. Check out mine HERE (requires login.)

In keeping with the September tradition of "Back-to-School," I'd like us to take the opportunity to celebrate education. That is, theme of the week will be posts that reflect in some way on the indispensable role that universities and other training centers play in making medicine happen. Actually, anything that has to do with learning and sharpening our skills will do nicely.

Submissions please by 6pm Sunday, 9/10, to amy(at)diabetesmine.com. See you then, scholars!
