Thank you Grand Rounds - Health in NonClinical Settings

Thank you Dr. Joe Kim for hosting Grand Rounds this week from his blog and including Fast Fitness - Contest: What Does It Take To Sit Upright? among his votes for the best in medical writing for the week.

Dr. Kim writes,
Dr. Jolie Bookspan from The Fitness Fixer has been collecting some interesting data about sitting straight up. Read about it here: Fast Fitness - Contest: What Does It Take To Sit Upright? Back health is important, but do you know how to keep your back healthy? The health and fitness industry is another area where health care professionals are finding some interesting non-clinical opportunities.

On the web, Grand Rounds is a collection of the best on-line medical posts from the past week. A different host works hard each week to find and list the articles. This is different from the Grand Rounds in a hospital, which is a lecture for doctors about a patient or topic. Thank you to this week's host Dr. Kim for doing the hard work of collecting and featuring our posts.
