Hi folks,

Despite a job title that's unique to the medical industry, this position is
ideally suited for an Interaction Designer. Please get in touch with me at
work (see address below) if you're interested!

Cheers,
Liz

P.S. Although I'm personally moving to Oregon, I'm remaining a full-time
employee with St. Jude. It's a great place to work!
