Dr Aaron Carroll is one of my closest friends and one of the finest people I know. He is one of the most reasonable and thoughtful guys as well. His most recent NY Times Op Ed is "Yes, People Are Traveling for the Holidays. Stop Shaming Them." It has caused quite a firestorm of sanctimony, judgement and hate online and that is one reason to definitely give it a read. He is a professor of pediatrics and associate dean for research mentoring at the Indiana University School of Medicine. He is also vice president for faculty development at The Regenstrief Institute. Dr. Carroll's research focuses on the study of information technology to improve pediatric care and areas of health policy including cost-effectiveness of care and health care financing reform. He is the author of The Bad Food Bible and the co-author of three additional books on medical myths.
