How do I join the MAHB?

Simply go to the following website: http://mahb.stanford.edu/what-can-i-do/join-mahb/ Make sure to sign up as an Associate if you are an individual and as a Node if you wish to have your group join MAHB.

What do I do if my group is already signed up as a Node and I want to join?

Just go ahead and sign up as an Associate and log-in to your account.  From the MAHB Node page, you can navigate to your group and click the button labeled  [Join Node] on the right hand side.

What does “Joining” a Node mean?

When you “Join” a MAHB Node you are expressing a shared interest in the Node’s work and the issues it is addressing. Some Nodes will have Node Forums for those who “join” to engage in an active discussion of the Node’s key issues.  Other Nodes will use the MAHB site to post activity updates, if you “join” you can choose to be notified when new updates are added.
