There are days when I have the feeling of drinking from a fire hose … and this is one of them! Multiple interesting new events have crossed my radar in the past 48 hours with topics that span AMR Awareness (two events in Geneva next week!), CNS infections (Rockville, MD), an EMA info-day for SMEs (London), One Health (Saskatoon), a networking event during ASM Microbe, a webinar on clinical trials, and a workshop on clinical trials (Seville).
It is wonderful see all this energy focused on AMR. Mark your calendars!
All best wishes, –jr
