  2. Choose “The University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston” from the drop-down menu.

  4. If you have nothing to disclose, you can affirmatively declare that on the page. Click all boxes that apply and click “Report No Activity”
  5. If you do have something to disclose, you can click either “Request Approval” or “Make New Disclosure” from the options at the top of the screen. See below for more information on navigating these two options.
