Update #75, June 3, 2005

Dear HCMN Members:
I'd like to introduce (actually re-introduce) myself - I am Susan Leibtag, and will serve as your new moderator for HCMN. I managed HCMN a few years ago, and am very happily taking this on once again. Thank you to Anjali Sanghvi for doing a wonderful moderating job for the last year or so!

HCMN is a virtual organization of over 600 members worldwide that is full of potential - we who work in the field of health communication have much to share, learn, and discuss.

We very much want HCMN to reflect and serve your needs as you do your work, so please feel free to email me and ask for specific discussions, information, and connections.

One of our new features is below, the "Question of the Month" - a discussion starter on a specific topic. Please reply!

Do you develop HIV/AIDS Antiretroviral Therapy materials? If so, what are your greatest challenges? If possible, could you email an image or PDF of the material so that the group can share it?

Here are the new HCMN members, who have just joined in the past couple of weeks:
