  • Massachusetts HCSS outreach: We are continuing our campaign to find opportunities to present the HCSS in the medical community and we need your help! We would like to ask PI reps at Massachusetts meetings to announce at their meetings that the HCSS exists and when fellows have an appt. with a health care provider (HCP) to mention this and let their HCP know they can have a presentation of the slideshow at their office during their lunch hour. We have a projector and qualified FA members in the area to do the presentation, we just need a light colored wall to show the slides. If you have any interest from your HCP, please email
    healthcareslideshow@foodaddicts.org
    and we can make the arrangements.
