Dr. Moscote-Salazar, some questions that have been raised are:
  • Would you be able to provide a webpage or other presentation about yourself? The link provided (https://neuroclani.org/) directs to a more general website.
  • Could you provide one or two sentences of what motivates you to join WikiJMed?
  • Would you be willing to begin contributing as an associate editor? The tasks can be described here: WikiJournal_of_Medicine/Associate_editors.
