Though the Consortium of Universities for Global Health conference wrapped up Saturday, I’m still cruising on its positive energy and smarts. You can’t help but be energized by that kind of concentration of intelligent and committed people. (However, I do want to thank ace journalist Amy Maxmen for the reality-check conversation on Saturday!)
My conference moments:
- Meeting Annie Liang and Simran Dhunna, University of Toronto students who came up with the Untold Global Health Story of 2015. (Look for details in GHN later this week.)
- Seeing the rock-star-sized crowd of students that Paul Farmer attracted after the panel discussion on Saturday.
- Hitting Au Bon Pain for the egg white, avocado and cheddar breakfast sandwich.
- Getting critical help from Belinda on the conference staff. (Danke!)
- Having countless mind-expanding conversations. It’s always good to be surrounded by people who are far smarter than you are.
Thanks again to all who stopped by to learn about GHN or had something kind to say. Dayna and I had a great time meeting everyone.
And please continue to share our new website with friends and colleagues.
