Trust yourself. You know more than you think you do.

In the new Society for Participatory Medicine we assert that patients have a lot to contribute to their well-being and to their own care, and ought to do so.

We know some folks can't quite believe that, or aren't quite comfortable with the idea. So we scoured the earth for the newest, most radical thinker's opinion on this. His words are on the fridge magnet that I bought the other day at Whole Foods Market: "Trust yourself. You know more than you think you do."

No, wait ... that's Dr. Benjamin Spock, writing the very first words of his classic baby book.

In 1946.
