Knit a Square- Today 12/14/11

Dear Journal Club and readers of this blog:
Sparks will be flying off our knitting needles/crochet hooks as the Knit a Square initiative for 2011 continues.  Please consider joining us today 12/14/11 in the Moffitt Cancer Center Lobby between 1-2 p.m.  If you don't knit or crochet, please consider donating soft yarn to our project...either from a stash you may have, or next time you see some yarn when you're shopping at a craft store.  

Thank you.

Christmas Journal Club is a Special Gift.

Join us tomorrow in Room 2215, Shimberg HSL.

Part I.  Denise Shereff, MLIS will lead us into a discussion of how we can support the physicians involved in  research or patient advocacy/support groups developing a "virtual" multicenter disease registry through disease-specific social media networks. This study is a prime example of patient-initiated research that could be used by other health care professionals and institutions.
