How to Join/Leave an e-list

How to Start a Conversation

There are two ways to activate group discussion.

  1. After you join an e-list, you may send a message directly to the list. When people reply, they typically reply to all the members of the e-list.
  2. You may also contact Beth McKinney, bm20@cornell.edu, from Cornell Wellness, with your message and she will forward it to the group anonymously. Either way, when the group is activated, there is a great deal of communication and sharing that goes on.
