User:Bluerasberry and a hamster

My name is Lane Rasberry. I have been a Wikipedian since 2008. I am interested in promoting access to health information through Wikipedia. To talk to me either post on my talk page or email me to make an appointment for a phone or video chat.

Improving Wikipedia articles and available free resources is the responsibility of everyone who has a stake in community education. More specifically - since Wikipedia is the world's most popular source of health information for most topics in health, it is the particular responsibility of health educators to consider the influence and impact of Wikipedia in their fields of expertise and to recognize that they must acknowledge and respond to Wikipedia as a communication channel in some way if they are to are to be effective in outreach.

Biographical sketch[edit]

Lane Rasberry is Wikipedian-in-residence at Consumer Reports, a United States-based non-profit consumer advocacy organization. His interests include clinical research, access to science information, public health, and consumer rights.

Summary of what I do with Wikipedia[edit]

Meetup off-wiki[edit]

  • I am currently living in Yonkers, New York. I go to Wikimedia NYC meetups.
  • My home is Seattle, Washington, in University District. If you are there then I can connect you to Wikipedians and health educators. There is a Seattle Meetup group.
  • Sometimes I am in Varanasi in North India, and in any case I know Wikipedia enthusiasts there. If you happen to be in that area and want to meet local data fanatics then write me.

Editing interests[edit]

I support Wiki Project Med along with all other projects to improve health information on Wikipedia!

I have interest in the following topics:

Pet projects[edit]

Review a new article draft

Sometimes I see another editor somewhere that I know I have seen before. I use Stalker if this happens; when one inputs usernames Stalker outputs a list of articles which all of the listed users have edited. This is part of MZMcBride's toolset.
