We're Extending the Deadline for the 2010 Nettie Award Nominations!

We're asking readers to nominate their favorite websites and online resources.

In the August issue of MDNG, we announced the return of the MDNG Awards for Excellence in Online and Social Media Healthcare Resources, better known as “The Netties.” Designed to honor the best of the best online tools and resources for physicians and patients, the Netties will recognize the people, websites, and resources that help our readers improve productivity and efficiency in their professional and personal lives and deliver better care.

Because there are so many useful and informative websites and online resources, we’ve decided to extend the nominating period for the Netties by another month. We’re also going to open up the process to readers who would like to nominate their favorite websites or resources in any of the 10 Netties categories listed below.

As we mentioned last month, because the online landscape has changed so dramatically since we last awarded the Netties, we’ve added some new categories to update the awards in this bold new world of cloud computing, mobile apps, and social media.
