Seal Update (Alan Greene)

Log in issues have all been resolved with the exception of logging in from Linked In which is being worked on.

Physicians and patients who wish to sign in and take the pledge can do so via their Facebook and Twitter accounts. It is expected that it will be mostly patients who sign in from social networks to nominate their physician.

We are still looking for feedback from Society members.

We will wait until Phase II (in several weeks) before we roll out a wide-spread communications campaign.
