Posts will be light over the next several days. Headed overseas later this week to Germany, Ethiopia and Zambia to begin my fellowship from the International Reporting Project at the School of Advanced International Studies of the Johns Hopkins University. I'll be in Zambia for about two weeks. So excited!
And speaking of fellowships and travel: I'll be working in Barcelona this fall! Yaay!
AIDS Vaccine Barcelona 2013 has awarded me an international media fellowship to report from and speak at the conference. Barcelona 2013 will be the world's "largest and most prestigious international conference of researchers, advocates, clinicians, private sector partners and public health experts" focused exclusively on HIV vaccine research. The fellowship is sponsored by Global HIV Vaccine Enterprise and the Catalan Program for HIV Vaccine Research. So very grateful for the opportunity. I'll be reporting for various outlets and contributing commentary to one of the networks. I'll also be hanging out in Ibiza and Lisbon. Yaasss!
Barcelona 2013 would be my third international fellowship. The first fellowship was a December 2011 trip to the high-level International Conference on AIDS and STIs in Africa in Addis Ababa sponsored by the Ethiopian government. Very excited, grateful and humbled for everything that life has presented me. Always aim high!
