Just a brief note to announce that my website, www.skepdoc.info, has been completely re-vamped. The old site was a Do-It-Yourself list of my writings with links to most of what was available online. The new site is professionally designed and has the complete text of everything I have written since I first began in 2002, more than 720 articles, including magazine articles, book chapters, and more. It is searchable, too, so you can easily find what I have written about any subject, from acupuncture to vaccines, from biotin to cows.

The new site also has other features such as videos, including my FREE 10-part lecture series on science based medicine vs. so-called complementary and alternative medicine. There is a link to buy my book Women Aren’t Supposed to Fly: The Memoirs of a Female Flight Surgeon.

There is a sign-up list for alerts to notify you when I post a new article. In addition to my weekly SBM articles, I now have regular columns in both Skeptic magazine (“The SkepDoc”) and Skeptical Inquirer (“Reality Is the Best Medicine”) as well as a not-so-regular column on the Committee for Skeptical Inquiry website (“The SkepDoc’s Corner”). The alerts will notify you when an article has been published, and again when I post the complete text of the article a month after publication.

Building the new site was quite an undertaking as we had to track down missing articles and transfer over each article—one by one—and give them all categories and tags so they would be easy for readers to find.

Many thanks to Ron Jette, a fellow skeptic and professional writer/website designer in Ottawa, Canada, whose idea it was to re-vamp the website and who volunteered to spend untold hours of his time working on this project not for pay but out of the goodness of his heart and his dedication to science and reason.

P.S. I finally succumbed to Twitter. You can follow me @HHSkepDoc. Great response already: just joined on Monday, and as of Thursday morning already have nearly a thousand followers. Hope this will help spread the word about Science-Based Medicine and clear thinking about medical matters
