Call for HSLI Journal Club Content Selectors

(via Peggy Carey, National University of Health Sciences)

HSLI members, might you find the time to help decide the selection of suggested articles or media for the HSLI Journal Club’s upcoming discussions? Currently-planned quarterly discussions for 2023 will take place the third Thursday of the month at 3:00 PM CDT. Those dates are February 16, May 18, August 17, and November 16.

Evaluating and selecting content would involve a one-week window two months prior to the meeting. So, for the upcoming February 16 discussion, the Journal Club will need to finalize the content between Friday, December 9, and Friday, December 16. There are currently approximately eight suggestions to consider.

If you are interested, please contact Peggy Carey, at pcarey@nuhs.edu. Thank you for your consideration.
