Best Medical/Health Issues Blog

Nominate your choice for Best Medical/Health Issues Blog. Blogs about health care, disability, weight loss, fitness, etc. are among the types of nominees one would expect in this category.

Update: Nominations are closed for all categories. Finalist will be announced the last week of December and voting will begins Jan. 4, 2010.


To nominate a blog you need to leave a comment on this entry. Your comment should contain the name of the blog, the main URL for the blog, and (if possible) the URL for a RSS/Atom feed. For example:


Unless you login via one of the supported authentication services (Facebook, Twitter, Google, Typekey, WordPress, OpenID, Yahoo, AIM, etc.) your comment will not be published immediately. Unauthenticated comments are placed in a moderation queue. Due to the volume of comments, it may take up to 24 hours for your comment to be approved. Comments from authenticated users will be published immediately.

Every so often our spam fighting service flags an authenticated comment as spam. If you put more than 5 URL's in a comment it will set off the junk filter. If your comment doesn't immediately appear that's probably what happened. We review and "unjunk" these comments as we are approving unauthenticated comments. We're sorry for the inconvenience.

Rules And FAQ's

  • You can nominate yourself, don't be shy.
  • The number of nominations a blog receives is irrelevant. One nomination is enough...
  • Rather than add a "me too" (i.e. multiple) nomination for a site in a category, please use the "+" icon to indicate your preference for nominees. The "+" ratings are one extra piece of information the finalist selection panel can use to help generate the finalist slates in each category.
  • Given the two previous items, we reserve the right to remove excessive comments (i.e. nominations) for the same site.
  • The nomination period is scheduled to end on Sunday, November 22, 2009, though we reserve the option to close nominations earlier or later.
  • Voting for selected finalists is scheduled to begin January 4, 2010. Finalists will be announced the week before voting begins.
  • Read The Nomination FAQ
  • Get Weblog Award logos to post on your site. Link to the nomination index or your favored category
  • Get technical help or ask questions at The Weblog Awards Discussion Forum on Facebook.
  • If you are linking to the contest consider using the nomination category archive, as it contains links to all of the nomination posts.

I would like to nominate as the best medical/healthcare blog on the internet. CareToLive has taken up the mantle to support the 30,000 men each year who die from late stage prostate cancer who are out of treatment options and have been discarded. We advocate for the use of Provenge, a safe and effective, first of its kind immunotherapy, which once approved, will kick off a paradigm shift in the way cancer is treated in the future. First immunotherapy for prostate cancer, then, breast, colon, urinary, lung, etc. We are expecting FDA approval within the next few months. The anticipated approval will represent a medical breakthrough, brought to you by a dedicated group of CareToLive advocates who refused to let the wall street cartel bury this important science.

This site and its sponsors exemplifies the best of the best in the power of people using the internet to serve a greater good in helping save lives by fighting governement bureaucracy to do the right thing.

So glad to see Care to Live get nominated for this category. A blogsite fighting to help save lives while battling the powers that be in Big Pharma and the FDA. CTL merits a win here.


A place of support and practical advice for parents who've experienced stillbirth or neonatal death.

The only health site written, run and researched by physicians. It is awesome.
