Articles for May Literature Review

This month, the Research Committee will be hosting its Literature Review on Wednesday, May 27th at 10:00 am EDT.

The articles for our literature discussion are listed below, and have also been posted to the ISDSResearch Gmail account.

As always, this call is optional for contributors but is an opportunity to help, express concerns, and make suggestions.

Please note any articles of high quality and broad appeal for inviting the authors for online presentation or for consideration for ISDS recognition in its annual awards.

To clarify the process for our growing list of participants, the submissions should be brief structured summaries rather than formal reviews. Submit a summary only if you feel that the article is worthy of posting.

For a copy of the summary template or to access the ISDSResearch gmail account, please email rviola@syndromic.org. Please email your input on any selected articles by Tuesday, May 26th.
