Phil, glad to hear of your interest/support. I imagine we could help to
facilitate the convos needed between the other groups mentioned. I'm also
keeping tabs on other interested parties that fall beyond the bounds of
CCG/SVIP/DIF.

Anil, what would be an appropriate next step to explore broadening the Q1
'21 event? At LEF, we would also be open to supporting the evolution of #3
(expectations of engagement). Open to thoughts from CCG leadership, but if
it's not overcooking the kitchen, I would be excited to join the 30 Oct.
cohort meeting to better understand what might be possible among a
broader network.
