Day 7: We are Swimming in Lists

number7-red-200Day 7 of the 12 Days of Christmas Posts has us swimming in lists. I love lists. You can find out so much in a short amount of time. And there are always plenty of good lists out there. This year I highlighted lists throughout the year in my I Love List posts. Here are my 7 picks for must read end of the year lists. Who do you know on these lists? Are you on a list?

A must see annual list from Medscape (@Medscape), The Year in Medicine 2015: News That Made a Difference.
