Our New Book on Medical Technology

To all of the awesome people in our wonderful gardening community.


You may have noticed that I haven’t added a new article in a while. The main reason for this temporary hiatus is that I have been working on some big projects that have taken up all of my free time.  However, I have a long list of plant and gardening topics that I intend to develop into articles soon.


So… What is this big project that you have been working on?

I am proud to share that one of those big projects is now officially completed.  This particular project is a new medical textbook focused on critical and exciting topics in health technology.

Using Technology to Improve Care of Older Adults


My friend Diane Chau, MD and I have joined forces as co-editors of the book.  In doing so we have combined her depth of geriatrics insight/experience with my years of medical technology knowledge/perspective.  We have also collaborated with 24 other amazing co-authors who are experts in healthcare and technology.

The book delivers a broad range of current, evidence-based knowledge about innovative technology that can advance the care and well-being of older adults. The topics and content in the book are also applicable to a much broader range of patients as well as engaged family members.

  1. Dr. Osborne,
    You’re amazing. I don’t know how you do it all. RX for you “Get some sleep”.

    • Thomas Osborne, MD

      Thank you buddy! Your the best.
      And yes, your totally right I should try to catch up on some sleep.
      Thanks for your kind comments.

  2. Dr Osborne,
    I was looking for some tips for my atemoya tree (growing in a pot for two years now)…and I get there! In my little island of Indian Ocean, I try to grow the maximum of “exotic” trees in my not so large garden. Gardening and astronomy are my passions.
    And I’m completing my medical cursus with courses on Health Information System. That’s why I find you very inspiring as person!
    Keep on the good work !

      Hi Rami
      Thanks for the note… sorry it has taken me so long to get back to you, it has been a crazy time for me lately.

      Thank you for your kind words.
      Sounds like we have similar passions.

      Regarding two of your passions (island gardening and astronomy):
      Caring for a garden on an island is like a metaphor for our role as stewards on our planet floating out in space. Respecting and understanding the delicately balanced, bounded, and precious interrelationship of it all.

      All the best and happy new year!

  3. Dr Osborne,
    Congratulations on your new promotion! You’re the brightest person I know and you will succeed in your new position.
