"Top 5 benefits for my team and I in just the last 6 months: - been introduced to published literature and reports of interest - learned different perspectives and terminology used, regarding research methods and health/health care/public health issues - became aware of conferences and dissemination mechanisms - met potential collaborators via HIFA members and contacts for our students to reach out to - most importantly I'm learning more each month and becoming an advocate for open access and open science."
