I've mentioned this in other threads, but wanted to put out a general call for help. The IOM panel is likely to be announced in the next couple weeks. We will have 20 days to comment on the selections. To help the community provide meaningful comment, I am gearing up for a massive research effort as soon as the panel is announced. I will be looking for expertise, bias, conflict of interest, etc. I have two helpers so far. But I could use more help!!!! I am looking for people who can be available as soon as the panel is released, and who can work quickly and independently. I will have guidelines for possible sources to get people started. The goal is to complete research and writing of profiles within 48 hours. Volunteers would work independently on one or more panelists, but then come together with others to discuss findings and decisions on bias, etc. This is not a Phoenix Rising effort. Profiles will be published on my blog, and will (hopefully) circulate widely in other venues like PR and ProHealth. But there are so many of you interested in these issues, I thought I would throw this out there. If you are interested in helping, please get in touch with me as soon as possible. PM me here, send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or comment in this thread. Thanks!
