Seeking Nominations for an Advisory Committee on Health Products

June 20th, 2007, 03:54 PM
I recently received this as a result of several ethics committees I serve on - I wondered if there were any professionals here interested in this commission. I have left out names and email addresses for privacy reasons. PM me if you are interested and have some background in a medical or nutritional field or like to be a lobbyist as a consumer. Thx! I just think the more people who have access to these boards, the better!
