Discussion Topic: Intro to MeRML
Guest Speaker: Scott DuBois
Topic: MeRML: Medical Records Management for Linux
Abstract: Motivated by historical and recent medical conditions, Scott looked for applications for Linux that would allow him to better manage his medical history. Not finding what he was looking for, has decided to write a new program MeRML.
Presenter: Scott DuBois
Bio: Scott is a recent graduate of the University of Phoenix with a BS Degree in Software Engineering. He currently works as a P/T Linux Professor at Ohlone College while seeking F/T employment. He is actively involved in the local Linux communities and is always willing to provide help or guidance when possible.
Born with a degenerative kidney condition, Scott has spent his entire life under a doctors care while in and out of hospitals. Realizing the disconnectedness of medical records over a lifespan, he has determined that a simple platform that will allow people to more easily manage their own medical records is a missing necessity in the Linux community. Hence, the unfolding of the MeRML: Medical Records Management for Linux Project.

Linux User Groups have been around since Linux all began for the general public back in the early 1990's. We are groups of technology professionals, enthusiasts and hobbyists who enjoy working with Linux based and open source technologies that use or rely on the Linux kernel.
The East Bay Linux User Group is intended to provide a close proximity for those enthusisasts who live between San Francisco and Silicon Valley who wish to participate once a month with other people who are also Linux and open source enthusiasts. All meetings are free and food and refreshments are provided by our host Hurricane Electric.
There are no membership fees or dues required to become a member and participation is strictly voluntary. Joining EBLUG is as simple as coming to a meeting or participating in IRC chat or mailing list discussion. Any participation regardless of how great or small qualifies a person as a member.
