The Journal of Medical Toxicology (JMT) hosted its most recent fireside tweetchat on July 20 on the topic of synthetic cannabinoids (SCs). This event was prompted by the ToxIC study of SCs in our June issue and the tweetchat included authors from that study, editors, and participants from all over the world, including tweeting clinicians with impressive SC experience out in Poland. Many thanks to Peter Chai for organizing this tweetchat – look for another JMT-sponsored fireside tweetchat later this fall.
For those who have not heard, "Teletoxicology: Patient Assessment Using Wearable Audiovisual Streaming Technology" from our December issue by Aaron B. Skolnik and co-authors was selected for Springer’s Change the World—One Article at a Time campaign. According Springer’s press release, that teletoxicology article tackles a pressing global challenge and shows how innovative researchers can make a difference. Congratulations to Aaron and co-authors: we are eager to see more forward-thinking work from them.
