News and Events

1st Anniversary for

One year ago today I made the first post to At the time my vision was to share tips, resources, study aids, and publish ebooks for professionals, students, and educators. Over time my vision has grown to include product reviews, feature posts from guest bloggers, and the medical author chat podcast.
