<Susie> Don: Linkages were fairly sparse

<Susie> Bosse: struggled to get beyond ClinicalTrial.gov

<Susie> Bosse: could expand to "with my profile what other information is useful"

<Susie> Bosse: try to get a profile to share

<Susie> Susie: Clinicaltrials.gov & lillytrials are main sources of information on trials
