    Hi Julie, I currently live in the St. Louis area. Seeing that you are familiar with the Missouri surroundings and well established in the medical field, I was hoping that you could provide me with some advice or referrals of whom I could speak with on gaining participation interest for career fairs for the general public, in the medical field.
