Dr Aaron Carroll is one of my closest friends and one of the finest people I know. He is one of the most reasonable and thoughtful guys as well. He is a professor of pediatrics and associate dean for research mentoring at the Indiana University School of Medicine. He is also vice president for faculty development at The Regenstrief Institute. And now Aaron is the Chief Health Officer at IU. Dr. Carroll's research focuses on the study of information technology to improve pediatric care and areas of health policy including cost-effectiveness of care and health care financing reform. He is the author of The Bad Food Bible and the co-author of three additional books on medical myths.
D. Earl Stephens modest bio from his website EnoughAlreadyNow.com
I’m an award-winning journalist who traveled the semi-free world using another name on my passport. I broke stories and they broke me. Guess I pretty much stayed broke.
Made it 29 years on the print side, before stubbornly finishing up as a managing editor at Stars and Stripes Newspaper, the editorially independent newspaper that serves our troops and their families overseas.
And this: I’m pretty sure the decline in newspapers has had a direct impact on the increasing ignorance in America.
I’ve been wildly fortunate to live in a lot of places around this big, beautiful, confused world — Africa, Europe, Asia … These days I’m back in the U.S.A, which lately seems to pride itself in going backwards.
I don’t like what I’m seeing or hearing, so I am trying to raise a little hell while writing about it.
For now, please stand up for yourselves, brothers and sisters. You are most likely worth it.
