Based on an investigation conducted by the institution, ORI found

two instances of plagiarism in publications related to two Public

in which he has accepted ORI~s finding and, for the two (2) year

period beginning August 8, 1995, has voluntarily agreed to:

(1)  exclude himself from serving in any advisory capacity to PHS,

including but not limited to service on any PHS advisory committee,

board, and/or peer review committee, or as a consultant; and

contributors to the application or report are properly cited or
