Yes...lists! In an effort to quickly spread the word of upcoming events throughout the region, NWOC maintains an electronic mailing list. Notices are sent out roughly once a quarter (or as the need arises), and contain information about upcoming events, new products, and training opportunities. These are brief, NEVER include an attachment, and refer the reader to more detailed information at this or other websites. A sample e-mail notification from a past mailing is posted below. Others can be viewed at http://www.wou.edu/nwoc/news.htm.
We also periodically send out notices through US mail. If you would like to be added to our mailing lists, please send your name, affiliation (if any), complete mailing address, and e-mail address (phone/fax info optional, but appreciated) to firstname.lastname@example.org.

to 20 people. Students must pass a 1-hour pretest to be approved for the seminar.
Pretests must be completed and submitted by September 29, 2000. Approved trainees

ATTENTION: HEALTH SCIENCES PROFESSIONALS NEEDED
Do you know of a professional who is deaf or hard of hearing and working in the health sciences fields (e.g., nurse, doctor, dentist, EMT, clinical lab technician, dental hygienist, radiation therapy, etc.)? The Health Sciences Students with Disabilities Faculty Education Project at Oregon Health Sciences University is looking for individuals with disabilities to interview about their educational and work experiences as a person with a disability in the health sciences field. The goal and purpose of the study is to increase the capacity for faculty to provide effective accommodations to students with disabilities in Health Sciences Programs, thereby increasing the retention of students with disabilities in Health Sciences Programs.
