Stanford Medicine Newsletter Updates For the Local Community


Biomedical blog posts news and insights

Updates on the newest discoveries at Stanford, commentary on public health issues and insights into developments affecting health care are just a small sample of the news and conversation available from Scope, an award-winning blog published by the School of Medicine’s Office of Communication & Public Affairs

Scope was introduced in October 2009 to provide high-quality, timely discussions about research, clinical care and health-care policy. The blog has been recognized as a leading voice in the biomedical blogosphere and received a 2010 Excellence in New Communication Award from the Society for New Communications Research, among other awards.

Scope is one of several ways the medical school’s Office of Communication & Public Affairs is using social media to enhance discussion about biomedical research and engage the public. Other initiatives include its “1:2:1” podcast, Flickr photo stream, YouTube brand channel, Twitter feeds and Facebook fan page.
