It is natural to reflect at the end of the year. I wanted to share this post as a way to thank all of my readers and contributors and to give a full accounting of how the site performed over the past year. Sharing this data will hopefully allow me to continue to improve the site and expand PEMBlog's educational reach in the service of my ongoing efforts to teach as many providers as possible about the care of ill and injured children.

The American Academy of Pediatrics issued a statement opposing the overall budget proposal and today joined with several other organizations to speak out against the president's recommendation to defund EMSC. Read on for how you can help.
Every year I make an Anniversary video for my wife. And every year I post it online (the only non-educational post on PEMBlog). This year is no different. It's probably more embarrassing for me than "My Best Friend."
