I am a Hematology Oncology specialist in Southern California. I have been fascinated with the potential of Wikipedia, and I think a combination of a moderated and "open" format will combine the advantages of instant information availability and accuracy.
I have been appointed to the Health Sciences workgroup, and I look forward to contributing to the Citizendium project.
Pages I am editing
- Bone marrow
- Anemia of chronic disease
- Shared decision making
- Medical ethics
- Reticuloendothelial system
- Guillain-Barre syndrome
- Myelodysplastic syndrome
- Polycythemia vera
- Pica (disorder)
- Iron deficiency anemia
- Red blood cells
- Stem cell transplant
- Pulse oximetry
- Terry Schiavo really an outstanding page from wikipedia
- Death, to which I added stuff about Kubler-Ross
- Hereditary spherocytosis
The goal here is to bring pages over from the dread Wikipedia, then redact them into something resembling a scholarly article.
