Survey Request, please read and respond if possible.
Newsgroup moderators, please accept this post, I am attempting
to conduct a survey of physician usage of USENET groups.

I am conducting research into physician use of the Internet, and
specifically, USENET groups. I am trying to gather information on usage
patterns. Below is a short survey which will help me gather the data I am
seeking.

I am conducting this survey over the Internet, as this is the best way to
reach physicians who are currently using USENET groups. I am specifically
looking for responses from medical and dental physicians (MD, DO, DDS,
DMD).

Please do not follow up this post to this group, but send the form back
to me, so I can gather the data. Use the form, type answers in the
spaces, using your text editor. The best way to do this is first (m) mail
the post to your email account, and then fill it out and return to me by
email. I am interested in data, and all replies will have their
origin/sender removed from header as I conduct the research. If you do
not have edit function, the responses can be sent to me in the form of
email, with number of question, and response, A, B, C, etc..

I am grateful to those who participate in this survey, helping me with my
research. Thanks! Alan
