The physician groups that ACOR hosts are “private” lists. This means that the existence of this Listserv will not be advertised on the ACOR website, and new members can only be added to the Listserv by one of the managers. We invite your suggestions for ways to inform others about the existence of this mailing list. We anticipate that the participants will include both your colleagues with carcinoid expertise and other healthcare practitioners needing information to treat carcinoid patients.
The managers of this List are Linda Silversmith (NIH-science writer and spouse of a carcinoid patient); Mary Rahrick, MD (pediatrician and carcinoid patient), and Pam Powell (carcinoid patient and Florida support group leader).
