Talking to people
I am honored to have been asked to speak at UT Southwestern's 3rd Annual Global Health Symposium on February 8&9 2014.
As you can see, the topic is "Transformative Global Health: Impact and Accountability", which will make for a wide-ranging and engaging couple of days. For example, I'm going to be talking about the role of medical education in transforming global health i.e. inter- and intra- institutions, professions and regions.
I just finished reading "Pharmacy on a Bicycle", one of the authors of which (Dr. Eric Bing) is also speaking at the conference - very interested in chatting with him.
All in all, should be an illuminating and fun weekend - see you there?
UPDATE: This conference was indeed engaging with many learned speakers and some great work being done all over the world - I would heartily recommend attending next year if you can swing it. The UTSW Medical Center News wrote a very nice piece on my talk.
