To get to WeWork Labs: As you're facing 175 Varick Street look to your left and you'll see Charlton Street. The entrance to WeWork is on Charlton Street. You'll enter through a black door that says WeWork on it, go straight up several steps and go through another door. Then, you'll see the elevators to your left. Go to the 4th floor. The Meetup sign in desk will be right there as you exit the elevator.

    Folks, I'm unable to join you on week-days, sad to say. Though we have a NYC operations base (and Philly, and Orlando), I work mostly in Philly and am in NYC weekends.

    I'm Chief Medical Officer of a new start-up, about to emerge from stealth mode, that's already deep in the weeds where all you guys work at NUICentral!

    Momentarily, my new start-up will be posting a new position for a prototype- and interface-designer for a novel health care application, funded by the National Institutes of Health.

    Can you advise me as to how to reach out to NUICentral membership to make everyone aware of this position?
