I am a Professor of Internal Medicine and of Preventive Medicine and Public Health at KU School of Medicine-Wichita. I teach Population Health in Practice to our senior medical students.[1] Each of the projects in the course is justified by a literature assessment. Each project team summarizes their assessment at WikiDoc (list of edits). This use of learning evidence-based medicine by executing evidence-based edits began in 2007 at the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio.[2]

I led developement of which hosts online rapid, living systematic reviews. This project is open-source and transparent. Thus, some of the forest plots are re-used at WikiDoc.[3]

I developed which is a federated search engine that automates some of the work of literature searching.[4]

I developed a citation builder ( for wikimedia products such as WikiDoc, Citizendium, and WikiPedia.[5]
