Dr. Val Puts the "Val" in Valentine’s Day On the Dr. Anonymous Show?

Valentine’s Day is one week from today. Since I’m a bit of a blog geek (ok, my husband calls me the “bloginatrix” – go ahead, you can laugh), I can’t think of a better way to spend MY Valentine’s eve than with Dr. Anonymous and 3 other lady bloggers: Crzegrl, Chronic Babe, and Emergency Em on a special Blog Talk Radio feature show! The idea for the show came up when I was complaining to Dr. Anonymous about the fact that most of his guests were male, and that the conversations inevitably degenerated into viagra and cialis debates by the end of the full hour. I suggested that a little bit of estrogen should be added to the testosterone-focused show, then the ladies in the chat room piped up with an enthusiastic, “Let’s have a lady’s night – we’ll call it Estrofest!” And the rest is social networking history.

So please mark your calendars – join me for “Estrofest” on a special Valentine’s Day radio podcast on the Dr. Anonymous show, 9-10pm EST, February 14th. You can call in and chat with us ladies, or just listen in to what we think about medicine, dating, and life in the blogging fast lane. I’m going to do my best to keep this PG-13, but with fellow guests like crzegrl, I’m not sure it’ll be entirely within my control.

Hope to see you at the show!

P.S. Don’t fall for the pressure of Hallmark et al… you can be “romantic” any night of the week… postpone your Valentine’s Day plans with that special someone, and join us at Estrofest!

The Spirit Of The Place: Samuel Shem’s New Book May Depress You

When I was in medical school I read Samuel Shem s House Of God as a right of passage. At the time I found it to be a cynical yet eerily accurate portrayal of the underbelly of academic medicine. I gained comfort from its gallows humor and it made me…

Eat To Save Your Life: Another Half-True Diet Book

I am hesitant to review diet books because they are so often a tangled mess of fact and fiction. Teasing out their truth from falsehood is about as exhausting as delousing a long-haired elementary school student. However after being approached by the authors’ PR agency with the promise of a…
