Diablogue’s 500th post
March 23, 2012: This week the Health Care Divisional
Council’s Diablogue reached a milestone posting its 500th story since
beginning in January 2010.
The HCDC blog was intended to create a dialogue on public
health care policy – and that it has done. Diablogue is now widely read
among journalists, policy makers, think-tanks, academics, researchers,
hospital CEOs, community organizers and OPSEU’s 36,000 health care members.
Comments are on the rise as many of these readers have contributed their own
insights for discussion.
Our readers tell us regularly that the site is both
entertaining and informative.
We try hard to cut through the jargon-filled health care
system to distill issues of importance to our readership community.
The 500th story – “Taxes: Let the mole people pay” -- looks
at the unreality of a public that demands quality public health care but
insists someone else should pay the taxes.
