Currently, there are no trained Campus Ambassadors at Rutgers. I'm not sure exactly how this would work, though it could be interesting. I encourage you to reach out to some folks at Rutgers whom you think would get involved and be interested in heading up that project.

including medical decisions on which there could be potential

prudent about them. I believe we could resolve all those issues by
recruiting IBM Watson as an editor in the Education Program subject to
the ordinary evaluations and in full exposure to the scrutiny of the
