  1. Yonaaaaah! Is one of your friends in this? I'm interested but can't make it to the program (working).

  2. Oh wait duh, you said you're in it!!! Do you know if they do epidemiology?

  3. I don't know, email them and ask -- they are awesome and do awesome stuff. Occasionally they talk about terrorist threats (and how to respond to them), and I get antsy, but otherwise they are awesome.

  4. I submitted a volunteer app, so I'll see what they say :)
    Thanks for the heads up!
