Conferences Global Health Tropical Medicine

Tropical Medicine 101 Conference

Another person at work gave me a flier for a very interesting conference, coming up, that I thought I would share. is putting on a conference in Februrary 3-9 2008, located in Guatemala. The conference is geared to educate the primary care physician about travel and tropical medicine.

The number of guest lecturers looks impressive and promises to include a wide range of topics. There are a lot of very fun looking “side trips and activities” to do, while in Central America, as well.

The conference is sponsored by LAMP:
“Travel and International Medicine is sponsored by Lake Atitlanán Medical Project (LAMP), an all-volunteer, non-profit organization working with indigenous communities around Lake Atitlanán, Guatemala, to improve their health-care.” Volunteer opportunities are available with the organization, as well.

I’d love some feedback from anybody who attends, because I cannot go! Thanks!

  1. Hey,

    I have a great link for a video profile on a photographer and travel writer who has just finished a new travel guidebook called Moon: Guatemala. His name is Al Argueta and he is a child of Guatemalan parents and has spent much of his life in that country. He currently works and resides in Round Rock, Texas, right outside of the capital city of Austin. Here is a link to the video from the website of the show Docubloggers on the PBS station KLRU in Austin, Texas. Enjoy!
