This is my personal account. I am the Board Chair of Wiki Project Med Foundation and was previously a Wikimedia Foundation Trustee (Community Selected Member)
All people deserve access to high quality health information in the language of their choice and in a format that they can access. I believe that by working together we can achieve this dream.

About me

I am an editor most active on the English Wikipedia where I go by the name User:Doc James. I am an emergency physician by profession and have been working on Wikipedia for more than ten years.

My work

My main efforts involve improving Wikipedia's medical content. I am working in collaboration with Translators Without Borders among others to try to take a few small steps towards improving our content not only in English but a wide variety of other languages. You can read more about the efforts here. We would love your help and guidance.
