Follow up to group Zoom on COVID19 research

  • 1.  Follow up to group Zoom on COVID19 research

    Dear colleagues,

    I'm writing with an update following the group Zoom on Friday for HCM Division members interested in COVID19-related research.  About 40 members joined the conversation, and these members generated a number of ideas.  We've laid them out in a Google Doc spreadsheet, the purpose of which is to enable those interested and able to participate to self-identify and self-organize. 

    We've created a Google Drive, which you can find here:  https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/0AOtoMsStvkCDUk9PVA

    You may need to request access, in which case I'll authorize you as soon as I can (or email me directly if you have trouble). If anyone knows how I can make access more freely available, please let me know.

    I encourage each of you to peruse the spreadsheet, add your ideas, your name and contact information, and desired contribution according to your interest.  For each of the proposed topics identified so far, individuals have offered to convene an initial discussion (via group chat or email) for those who sign up.  I hope many of you will do.  I also encourage conveners to continue using the HCM Division message board to communicate your plans/requests to the Division. Now, as never before, collaboration feels like an appropriate approach.

    Best wishes,
