BLOG: November, again!

November 21, 2017

On Nov. 21, 2016, we launched this blog on Healio.com/Endocrinology. We mutually agreed to call the blog, “From the Doctor’s Bag.” On the occasion of the first anniversary of the blog, I wish to emphasize my gratitude to Healio.com/Endocrinology for giving me this opportunity.

In this post, as the blog enters its second year, I will share some thoughts about the month of November and talk about some of the many occasions that occur in the month. I will also refer to some selected posts from the blog.
