Hi, everyone,

PLease excuse a quick reminded of tomorrow's organizational meeting for the
Healthcare Educators group in Second Life.

11AM SLT / 2pm EDT

Some folk contacted me via email about this, just as I was switching email
systems, and I don't have access to the messages. My apologies! Please feel
free to join the group in Second Life.

If you don't know how to join a SL group, the easy way would be this.

1. Using the Search button in the SL browser, click on the tab for GROUPS.
Search for "Healthcare Education" and click the "Join" button.


2. Using the Search button in the SL browser, click on the tab for PEOPLE.
Search for me (Perplexity Peccable) and browse my profile groups. Double
click on the group you want to get information about it and/or join it.

See you tomorrow!

> We thought we'd give it a try, create a group, and see if anyone else is
