Posted by Andy

For those unaware The ScHARR Library is nicely nestled in a much larger organism under the name of Health Economics and Decision Science (HEDS). With the aid of my good self, Professor Simon Dixon has launched HEDS first venture in the realm of blogging with a site that has regular interesting posts about what we do - all of which don't extend beyond 200 words. So no long reams of text, it's all straight to the point, and considering how the average attention span has shrunk to've stopped reading this haven't you?
