Overland Park, Kan.—Less than three months after it sold its 17-title Professional Services Division, Ascend Media is closing three of its medical titles. The December issues will be the last of Family Practice Recertification
(95,000 circ.), Internal Medicine World Report
(110,000 circ.) and Physician's Money Digest
(180,000 circ.). The titles are part of Ascend's Healthcare Group, which will have five titles remaining in its portfolio. The company’s Dental Group is currently on the block. Its Dental Product Shopper
was sold last week for an undisclosed sum to the magazine's publisher Dave Branch.
