Wikipedia and Wikimedia project involvement[edit]

I actively edit articles on Wikipedia, which is how I started my involvement in this global community that crowdsources open and free knowledge. I strive to cite reliable, third party independent published sources with a reputation for fact-checking and accuracy, to support all claims that are made here on this encyclopedia. While I believe in the motto Be Bold, I avoid any editing that may be construed as a conflict of interest. While few guidelines across any of the Wikimedia Projects are completely clear, I personally find that working with others in good faith often produces the best results overall, both on and off wiki.

Beyond editing, I (Jeffrey) am involved in a number of Wikipedia + Wikimedia projects across the Movement:

I also work as the Wikipedian-in-Residence WIR at PCORI (Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute), and in this capacity engage in the advocacy, negotiation, relationship-building, training, consultation and the like, such as editing articles, related to promoting the development and distribution of health care content on Wikimedia projects related to patient-centered health care. As such, I advocate the medical guidelines within MEDRS and MEDMOS to guide my edits on medical articles and do all I can to avoid conflicts of interest in medicine-related articles on Wikipedia.
