CommonHealth is taking the last two weeks of August off. When it returns on 8/31, the blog will be under new management. I'm taking a 10 month leave from WBUR. Rachel Zimmerman, a former health and medicine reporter with the Wall Street Journal, will run the blog. You can reach her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks to all, Martha Bebinger
