Letter: Did not write broadband article

I was surprised to see the Sunday, June 16, column in The Forum entitled “Expand broadband in rural ND,” which listed my name, title and organizational affiliation (and picture) as being allegedly submitted and authored by me. Unfortunately, I did not submit this commentary to The Forum, nor was it written by me.

The piece was submitted and written by an individual who works for Broadband for America in Des Moines, Iowa, which is an organization promoting, encouraging and attempting to find ways of justifying expansion of broadband Internet use in rural areas.

While the column gave a very positive and accurate reflection of our North Dakota telepharmacy program, for which I have been principal investigator and project director, I cannot in all honesty claim credit or responsibility for the commentary or its contents.
