I think it looks fine.  Good work.
I have attached a revised edition-slightly- of the triage and see your own patient forms.  If there is not a problem Morgan or someone could send them to officies

Subject: [kcimt_mag] Question

For those of you who aren't familiar with listserv emails, let me share a little.  For those of you who are, just ignore this part.  Save kcimt_mag@xxxxxxxxxxxxx to your contacts and when you want to talk to the Medical Advisory Group, just sent a message to this email address.  If you receive a message from this, just reply to the email and it will go to everyone.  It is kind of like a large email group that is managed by someone else. 
The question is... We are thinking of using this matrix as a public education tool. 
Any issues...
