How would you feel about working together on a Parasitology software
project, a CD that teaches Clinical Parasitology and perhaps other disease
diagnosis?  A friend of mine named Drake Zimmerman from Normal, IL has an
organization called RAM (Rotarians agaisnt malaria) and he wants to have a
CD with an emphasis on malaria, but including other diseases, made, both
with Dx, Tx, and prevention features.  Let me know.  Phuc says we can use
CDC images.  Ron Smith, a computer education specialist from IL, and others,
may also work with us.
