Get Out the Vote - GeriPal Style

Football season is now over. Baseball season doesn't start until April. Worst of all, the World Curling Championship is still more than a month away. How the heck are you going to support your ongoing need to cheer on the home team? Here is a suggestion – root for Geripal in Medgadgest's Seventh Annual Medical Weblog Awards.

Geripal has been nominated as one of the 5 Best Clinical Sciences Weblogs. The competition is fierce with names like Academic Life in Emergency Medicine, EMCrit blog, Renal Fellow Network, and Resus M.E! Even though I really like all their sites, I think it is time to show them what a community focused on geriatrics, hospice, and palliative care can do when we put our minds to it.

So, lets get out the vote. Click on the award link and take 3 seconds to vote for geripal (really - I swear - all it takes is 3 seconds).

Eric and Alex and the rest of the GeriPal crew....congrats on your nomination. I really think this is your year and the year for a HPM related blog to win!!! Pallimed and Medical Futility have both been nominated in the past but did not win. I am dedicated to getting out the vote and will be posting to Pallimed tomorrow. Way to go!!

And the announcements of the winners will be while we are in Vancouver!

Thanks Christian. It's remaining a pretty tight race. I think it is time to turn up the throttle.

Remember you can vote each and every day, polls are almost closed and the renal guys are neck and neck. Spread the word.
