TheConversation: It attracts a lot of readers

Over the past few months, we have featured some (all, I hope) of the articles that colleagues at UNMC have written for TheConversation.

We have also promoted the idea that you should consider writing for TheConverstion, as it does tend to attract a lot of readers. We are pleased to see that a few of our colleagues have taken this advice, and I hope that thay see it as a worthwhile activity.

In case you need more persuasion, below is the complete list (at least I hope so, let me know if we have missed any) of articles written by colleagues at UNMC ovet the past six months or so.

In total, these articles have ben read by 75,743 (as of 22 June 2014) and have been tweeted and syndicated many times.
