Another person at work gave me a flier for a very interesting conference, coming up, that I thought I would share. TropicalMedicine101.com 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!
