For your interest and information, I just received one of the emails I am subscribed to. For any of you who do not know of these resources, I commend them. Even though we often end up criticising doctors and "big pharma", there is no doubt that what is available here demonstrates that thyroid is an enormously complicated subject.
Dear ENDOTEXT and THYROIDMANAGER READERS---
May 2016 bring you some peace and prosperity. And if you wish to expand your knowledge of Endocrinology, may we recommend— not surprisingly, WWW.ENDOTEXT.ORG, and WWW.THYROIDMANAGER.ORG .
More good things keep happening on ENDOTEXT. For example, Jonathan Purnell, Professor Of Medicine at the Oregon University of Health Sciences has become the Section Editor on Obesity, our book-within-a-book, “OBESITEXT”. Aidar Gosmanov, Associate Professor at University of Tennessee Health Science Center is now co-editor of the Diabetes Section..
On January 16 the NIH/NLM/NCBI will upload all of the latest chapters in ENDOTEXT to their version of ENDOTEXT, and Index them in PUBMED, as is done every 3 months. ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/books/NBK3... If you wish to always see the very latest material on all topics you should visit our website directly. Among recent additions you will find an outstanding review of insulin types, pharmacology and treatment endotext.org/chapter/modali... ,

Volunteer!! Endotext has recently benefited by the arrival of 4 volunteers, (Maria Aponte,MD, Ahmad Alhashemi,MD, Fady Hannah-Shmouni,MD, and Ricardo Correa,MD) all young and in or just out of training. They see and feel the future of endocrine learning on this website. Each has taken responsibility for developing one aspect of our program, and we will provide details of their work as they settle in. And we would like to welcome YOU as a volunteer as well, so consider it and let us know if you are interested. The work will be expanding the reach and usefulness of ENDOTEXT and THYROIDMANAGER around the US and the world.
As of today ENDOTEXT has 24,200 registered readers, and even more to the point, 531 Enhanced Subscribers who support our Not For Profit organization with a $20/year contribution. They in turn can download a PDF of every chapter on our web-book every day for a year, if so inclined! (May I note for the wary that ENDOTEXT never ever gives out it’s subscriber information to anyone.)
CME based on ENDOTEXT chapters is available (for FREE currently) via the University of Mississippi website (http://www.endotext.org/cme/) and will be certified for the developing joint ABIM/ACCME program, once it is established.
Lastly, if you find ENDOTEXT useful, we encourage you to spread the word to trainees, colleagues, and friends who may not be aware of this outstanding FREE endocrine text. We are kept afloat and continuing by your subscriptions and your donations. We proudly state that “if you really want to learn about Endocrinology, ENDOTEXT and THYROIDMANAGER are the sites to visit”.
BELIEVE. SOMETIMES IN THIS WORLD YOU CAN RECEIVE SOMETHING VERY VALUABLE AND USEFUL, FOR FREE !!
