passion, talent, job...
Not sure how this would fit in, but I recently (its been two years, already?) completed my doctorate in chemistry, which was in progress when I was hit with PE and HELLP. I'm currently a director of a scientific instrumentation laboratory at a Big 12 university, a psuedo-faculty position. I have a strong background in computers, training people one-on-one, and classroom teaching, of course. I'm located in the center of the country, and haven't seen evidence of a 'chapter' in this area. As far as organizing people (rather than molecules) my real-life skills are limited to college organization leadership and membership. I'm currently pres. of our local American Chemical Society chapter.
I'd love to help out in any capacity - online or in my community. After reading over and over the missed diagnoses - we've got to be heard. National TV, newspapers, magezines, books, medical journals... anywhere to get the attention of hordes of doctors and nurses.
