My name is Hilda Bastian. My interests revolve around ensuring people have easy, free access to the highest quality health information based on unbiased health research - and increasing understanding about it. On Wikipedia, I work mostly on biographies and images of African-American scientists/people in STEM, as well as other under-represented groups and issues in STEM. I try to encourage non-Wikipedians to get involved in this via Missing Scientists' Faces.
I'm an Australian who moved to Germany to work on Gesundheitsinformation.de (German version) / Informed Health Online (English version). In 2011, I moved to the USA to work on the PubMed Health project at the National Library of Medicine (NLM), with its National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI). I also work on a project that began in 2013, PubMed Commons.
I have a personal website and a personal blog, commenting on the science of unbiased health research with cartoons, called Statistically Funny. And I blog about bias, medicine, life and uncertainties at Absolutely Maybe (blogging at Scientific American from 2013 to 2014, and from 2014 at PLOS Blogs Network), and about medicine at Third Opinion (MedPage Today, from 2015).
The views I express in Wikipedia are my own, not official positions of the NCBI, NLM, National Institutes of Health (NIH), or the US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), or any other organization with which I am involved.
