Crazy schedule and posting light over the next few days. On a writng deadline and headed overseas later this week to Germany and Spain. I'll be working in Barcelona and then will spend a few days in Munich.
AIDS Vaccine Barcelona 2013 has awarded me an international media fellowship. #AIDSVax2013 will be the world's "largest 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, the Catalan Program for HIV Vaccine Research and the government of Catalonia. I'm very excited and humbled. Only four or five American journos were awarded fellowships.
Barcelona 2013 would be my third or fourth international fellowship. I traveled to Zambia in July and August on a global health fellowship for the International Reporting Project at the School of Advanced International Studies of the Johns Hopkins University. 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.
