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.
