The theme to this newsletter is the need for the participation of our members: from a request for letters from our editor, Tom Rossing, to a general discussion of the roles scientists can play, to some practical instruction for how to do it. As Tom notes, letters can go to any of our editors, and will be considered for the then-current issue. To facilitate this process, you may click here to send an electronic letter to one of the editors.

The easiest way to navigate the Table of Contents (below) is to use the "Back" key on your screen after you read each article below.
