User talk:Eileen G. Erinoff
Welcome, new editor! We're very glad you've joined us. Here are pointers for a quick start. Also, when you get a chance, please read The Editor Role. You can look at Getting Started for other helpful introductory pages. It is essential for you as an editor to join the Citizendium-Editors (broadcast) mailing list in order to stay abreast of editor-related issues, as well as the mailing list(s) that concern your particular interests. It is also important, for project-wide matters, to join the Citizendium-L (broadcast) mailing list. You can test out editing in the sandbox if you'd like. If you need help to get going, the forums is one option. That's also where we discuss policy and proposals. You can ask any constable for help, too. Me, for instance! Just put a note on their "talk" page. Again, welcome and thank you! We appreciate your willingness to share your expertise, and we hope to see your edits on Recent changes soon. David E.

For a start, I just took some of the keywords from the information you supplied upon registration, and display below the current state of related CZ articles (for icon documentation, see Template:Rpl/Doc):

- Biochemistry: The chemistry of living things; a field of both biology and chemistry.
- Chemistry: The science of matter, or of the electrical or electrostatical interactions of matter.
- Analytical chemistry: Subfield of chemistry concerned with finding what constituents are in an unknown sample (i.e., qualitative analysis) and how much of each (i.e., quantitative analysis)
- Medicine: The study of health and disease of the human body.
