All of us, that is, all five human beings who make up the approximately 3 full time positions that operate NASEN are sick. We’ve got some kind of bug and well into the second week or more of feeling poorly. So we are running behind and it will probably take another week or so to catch up. First there’s the data backlog, then the tech question calls to be returned and then updating the start times for the projects on the website. We’ll get it all done as soon as we can and thank you for understanding our delays.
How they’ve managed to keep the office open and the Buyers Club up to date is beyond me.
It’s just another example of how very lucky I am.
NASEN is happy to formally launch NewsWorks, the NASEN announcement mailing list. To sign up, click here.
This is just the beginning of a greatly enhanced new system for us to communicate and has been four years in the planning. Its purpose is to provide us with a better way to communicate with you and soon a simple and secure way for all of us to communicate with each other. NEWSWORKS is just the start and by signing up for it, you will be teaching your ISP that our new NASEN.org address is not spam. Initially, NEWSWORKS will be open to anyone interested in syringe exchange and most likely will stay that way.
After we have you signed up, we’ll then launch the conclusion of the PEESE Project, a “best practices” for syringe exchange programs, created by syringe exchange programs. And after that , Exchange Works, which has the potential to be a secure social network for people within the syringe exchange community.
Welcome to NEWSWORKS!
