Looking for UI/UX assistance

I work with a non-profit hospital in rural India, JSS (www.jssbilaspur.org), that is building an open-source, volunteer-driven, health information system and is in need of assistance with UI/UX design.

JSS runs a multi-nodal hospital, three remote sub-centers and an extensive public health outreach program with 104 community health workers, serving the most marginalized members of Indian society. Its doctors believe in providing high-quality healthcare for the poorest of the poor, and have set forth the ambitious goal developing a completely open source, digital health information system, operating on cloud-based servers and tablet computers. I work directly with the physicians and staff at the hospital, helping to manage the project, and coordinate the efforts of our many volunteer contributors.

Please see the link above and this news item about JSS’ work: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4yY_JSO-Dqg

The project already has a  very talented pool of programmers in the US and India, many of whom are PhD an Masters-level computer science students from top universities. What we lack, however, is the UI/UX bandwidth to match our developers’ availability.

If any UI/UX designers here have the bandwidth to volunteer a few hours a week to this collaborative effort, it would be a huge help.

Many thanks,

p.s. if not, I completely understand. But perhaps you can circulate this to anyone who might be interested..?
