Good morning! I am on my way to the airport, headed up to Michigan State for a clinical skills lab, but I wanted to get this posted before I walked out the door. It’s time once again for Articles of Note, our monthly waltz through the newly published peer-reviewed literature. June’s list is truly a mash-up of all manner of topics–if screening tools are your jam, there are several validation studies in the mix, and a super-interesting modeling study on hyoid bone fractures. As always, links lead to PubMed abstracts unless otherwise noted. Please let me know if you are having difficulty getting your hands on articles and I will see what I can do to assist.
Next week I am back in the DMV for some local work for a change, and then I head to Budapest, a city I have never visited. [If you have some suggestions about where I need to go while I am there, drop me a note by email or in the comments. Food, sites, etc. I am open to all direction in this regard.] And then my hope is I will be seeing some of you when I get back–in person, no less–at the National Advocacy Center in Columbia, SC, for my favorite course of the year, our annual testimony course.
Happy reading, stay safe, and I hope we cross paths soon–Jen
