    :headache: For a variety of reasons I'm particularly cognitively impaired at the moment and appear to be unable to string together more than a couple of coherent sentences. **sigh**

    I have a number of friends who might be interested in registering for this Webinar if I could email them a short note explaining what it's about in layman's terms -- but my mush-for-brains is failing dismally.

    If anyone is up for composing a note I could use, I'll send it out and possibly get another half-dozen registerers....

    Thanks!

    I adapted this from the registration page information:

    The Blood XMRV Scientific Research Working Group is conducting studies to evaluate whether XMRV poses a threat to blood safety. In this webinar, Graham Simmons, PhD, and Michael Busch, MD, PhD, of Blood Systems Research Institute and University of California-San Francisco will provide an update on the Working Group studies, including results from Phase II, as well as future retrospective repository and prospective screening studies of XMRV in US blood donors and recipients. Steven H. Kleinman, BSc, MD, of University of British Columbia, and a member of the Working Group, will serve as moderator for the discussion.


    I hope this helps!

    Letter for friends/family re: BWG Webinar

    Got on a roll once jspotila jump-started my writing ability. This is what I have. Can anyone find errors or suggest improvements before I send this out?

    Hi everyone, for those in Australia (Brisbane) this is at 4am Saturday, which fits in well with my sleep at the moment. For everyone else, the registration page has a box to click for your local time zone so you don't have to think much. Bye, Alex

    I say err on the side of impressive numbers and at least register. There is always a difference between number registered and number attended for a variety of reasons.
