I started an internship at a consumer think tank a few weeks ago! Hopefully it'll add enough depth to my CV to actually get a job somewhere off the back of it.

Anyway, I wanted to know, does anyone out there in LJland know anyone who's been directly affected or in contact with people who have had H1N1/Swine flu? This could be staff at schools that have closed due to students having it, nurses or staff in hospitals that have dealt with H1N1 patients, parents of children who've had it, or even simply the people themselves who have had it - anyone that has had any direct contact with the current pandemic.

If you do I'd really like to talk to them about it!

Their experiences would be a very valuable and important addition to an independent, unbiased report we're writing on the broad-ranging impact of an influenza pandemic, using this recent one as a case study. The report will focus on the personal and human effects of such a pandemic and as such anyone affected will be extremely important to our work. Anyone that we talk to would have complete anonymity, and their name or place of work would never be released to anyone. Talking to us could be done completely over email, or on the phone taking no longer than 10-20 minutes.

Ideally we're looking for people in Canada, the US and Mexico, but really anyone affected by swine flu anywhere in the world would be very valuable.

Please pass this around and see if anyone knows anyone like this, we need to have some people lined up by the middle of next week (interviews would happen in the few weeks after that).
