[Workgroup] JuliaHealth Vote: Times for Monthly Meetings in Asia-Pacific and Oceania?

TL;DR: We need your help to make JuliaHealth more internationally inclusive! Vote below and respond!

Hi Julia community! :wave:

In our last JuliaHealth talk of the year, we discussed ways of making JuliaHealth monthly meeting calls more inclusive. As of now, JuliaHealth calls happen once a month at 10AM EST. That is not great for many Asia/Pacific Julia friends so we would like to open up a second monthly meeting call that is more timezone friendly as I have folks reach out wanting to attend, but unable to due to timezone issues.

So, I have two small tasks for those NOT FROM the Americas:

  1. Are you interested in a JuliaHealth Monthly call to discuss Julia’s use and applicability in health as well as to meet potential collaborators or peers in the Julia space?
  • Yes
  • No

Finally, as I am just one person, I need a partner who is willing to help run these sessions! If you can help me run these monthly calls, I am happy to show you my process for running meetings, making them effective, and give you the support you need. Please comment below or contact me directly!

Thank you for your consideration and let’s keep making JuliaHealth great!

I was asked what might be required of a potential meeting leader and the tasks would generally be:

  1. Organizing a monthly agenda
  2. Advertising the monthly call (I’d cover the more Europe/America-timezone friendly one) on Discourse and Slack
  3. Hosting the monthly JuliaHealth call
  4. Taking meeting notes
  5. Posting notes to the JuliaHealth website

Altogether, this may take about 3 - 4 hours of work per month at worst.

Thought it would be good to share this as well!
