Of Continuing Interest
- REMINDER: Applications for Lilly's Diabetes Scholarship Program for the 1998 school year must be submitted by March 31, 1998.
- Scientists are working hard to stop diabetes before it starts, but they can't do it without your help. Ask your doctor about the Diabetes Prevention Trial - Type 1 and get tested. It's free!
- The Chat Rooms have been completely overhauled in an effort to make them easier to use. You can now type in messages and have the chat room content refresh at the same time. Moving between chat rooms is also much easier. There might be a few kinks to work out, so if you have problems, please send and e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. There is a Chat Room Help page to help you get started.
For those people who have problems using the new interface, you can still use old interface.
