Articles for Journal Club:

Our chapter is interested in trying a Journal Club Meeting.  We would appreciate hearing from our members regarding their interest to participate in this event.  Interested participants would receive a copy of the journal article via their email that would be reviewed.  Hopefully the review and discussion will be lively.
