I said at the beginning of the year that I had big things planned for this blog, and I meant it.
Along with the creation of the very first Respiratory Therapy blog carnival , I've also been planning a few other ways to advance the profession and answer any questions that both the general public and other health care professionals may have regarding this field.
On Thursday, March 19, 2009 at 8pm CST, I am going to be LIVE on The Doctor Anonymous Show.
Dr. A Show 84: Trauma JunkieFor those of you who are not familiar with the show, Doctor Anonymous (or @DoctorAnonymous on Twitter) is a Family Physician in NE Ohio who hosts an internet radio show on BlogTalkRadio every Thursday and Saturday night. From the show website, the Doctor A Show is best described as, "A show that connects you to the best people in medicine and new media. We go beyond the blog to bring you up close and personal with the brightest stars of the medical blogosphere... We talk a little medicine, health, news, entertainment, public policy, politics, pop culture, new media, and whatever else comes up."
Length: 2 hours
Description: Blogger and Respiratory Therapist student "Trauma Junkie" talks about his blog "Surviving RT School" and a new blog carnival called "A Source of Inspiration"
I'm very excited to be the guest on this week's show, and I'd encourage you all to be present as I talk about a number of issues in Respiratory Therapy, answer any questions that callers might have about the field, and talk a bit about the newest carnival to hit the medical blogosphere, A Source of Inspiration.
For those of you who are just stumbling upon my blog for the first time in the past few weeks, "A Source of Inspiration" is a blog carnival highlighting the best of all things respiratory therapy on the blogosphere, in one location.
There will be lots of talk about the carnival on the Doctor A show, but you can read more about it here.
The next edition will post March 30, 2009, with a submission deadline March 27, 2009 at 5pm CST. I'd encourage EVERYONE to submit (especially the RT bloggers) to help contribute to the success of this endeavor. What better way to have your voice heard?
For first time Blog Talk Radio listeners:I hope to see everyone there! Bring your questions... I'll come armed with answers.
*Although it is not required to listen to the show, I encourage you to register on the BlogTalkRadio site prior to the show. I think it will make the process easier.
*To get to my show site, click here. As show time gets closer, keep hitting "refresh" on your browser until you see the "Play/Chat" button. Then, of course, press the "Play/Chat" button.
*You can also participate in the live chat room before, during, and after the show. Look for the green "Chat Now" button. If you are registered with the BTR site, your registered name and picture will appear in the chat room.
*You can also call into the show. The number is on my show site. If you have a headset microphone, you can "call" into the show by looking for the "Click To Talk" button at the top of the chat box to try out the BTR VoIP option. Hope these tips are helpful!
