Danny van LeeuwenLongtime SPM member Danny van Leeuwen (@HealthHats) is seeking nomination and support as a “patient/caregiver stakeholder” seat on the Board of Governors of PCORI, the Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute, about which we’ve blogged often – several times in posts by Danny himself. He is submitting a self-nomination and would appreciate anyone else who would also nominate him. (Yes, multiple nominations help in such things.) Deadline is Friday May 4.

To support him, please use your business letterhead if you have some (or simulate it with your personal name and address at top), cut and paste from this template, personalize it with any thoughts of your own about why this is important, and send as follows, from the full notice in the Federal Register:

  • Email: Include PCORI Nominations in the subject line of the message
  • Mail to: U.S. GAO, Attn: PCORI Board Nominations, 441 G Street NW, Washington, DC 20548.

CONTACT: Rashmi Agarwal at (202) 512–4077 or, if you do not receive an acknowledgment or need additional information.

Danny says if you want to speak with him, try or call him at 617-304-4681.  His resume is here.

Again, we have until May 4.
