Sample tweet: "Find and read 'The Poverty Clinic' by Paul Tough. Explains the science of how damaged childhood makes sick adults. http://nyr.kr/hNeCFo"

As if his work as an endocrine surgeon, public-health expert, author and staff writer at the New Yorker didn't keep him busy enough, Atul Gawande maintains an active, well-curated Twitter feed that stays up to date on the latest health-policy news, as well as other areas of interest such as music (he posts miniplaylists and REM lyrics) and the conflict in Libya.
