Health Care Resource Development, Inc. (HRD) a group devoted to addressing and solving many of the faults of our current healthcare system and the nation's leader in Diagnosimetrics(r) and Illness Specific Diagnostic Systems(r) is seeking research assistants to provide interpretation and input of data that has been abstracted from the patient records from a key hospital and luminary partner. The data will be used to develop Illness Specific Diagnostic Tables (ISD). ISD technology will allow for new methods and processes aimed at reducing diagnostic testing, a leading contributor to escalating costs in the delivery of health care services.

Due to the volume of abstracted data, HRD has immediate research positions for up to 40 assistants.

Assistants will be required to review the data abstraction sheets and transfer the pertinent data into appropriately configured computer spread sheets. The spread sheets may be downloaded onto the assistants personal computers with the results transferred to a memory stick provided. No travel required.

19.     EVENT: A Streetcar Named Desire (TODAY):
A Streetcar Named Desire is a play written by legendary playwright, Tennessee Williams. For ten days, (September 18-27), the School of Theatre and Dance at the University of Florida will present this play. September 18 & 22 -- 26 at 7:30pm. September 20 & 27 at 2:00pm.

A Streetcar Named Desire reveals to the very depths the character of Blanche du Bois, a woman whose life has been undermined by her romantic illusions, which lead her to reject-so far as possible-the realities of life with which she is faced and which she consistently ignores.
The pressure brought to bear upon her by her sister Stella, with whom she goes to live in New Orleans, intensified by the earthy and extremely sensual young husband of the latter, leads to a revelation of her tragic self-delusion and, in the end, to madness.

The production will take place in Constans Theatre. The University Box Office is located in the lobby of the Constans Theatre and is open Monday through Friday from 12:00-5:00pm and 45 minutes prior to each performance. Tickets for Students, Faculty, Staff and Senior Citizens are $13. Tickets for the General Public are $17.



*                                       *                                       *                                       *
