After our little mix in with the UCSF hospital security, I emailed our endocrinologist contact to see if we could get in and stay in. Unfortunately, we don’t have CHR approval, nor IRB approval, and were denied access to question/interview/speak with any of their patients. Part of me is tempted to schedule an appointment at the clinic, so that as another visiting patient I technically would not be there as part of a human study. Instead I would just be a curious fella sitting next to you. If I decide to do this, I fear that we may ruin our relationship with the endo that has been very helpful and kind thus far, so it may not happen. We will just have to see how our UCSF trip this Friday goes.
