Those of you who have been reading from the beginning know that the first week of this blog I made several posts while attending the American Academy of Pediatrics annual meeting. Several of you commented (not in the blog post but directly to me by email or in person) how much you enjoyed getting an insider's look at what goes on at some medical conferences. Currently I am in San Diego attending the Society of Critical Care Medicine's annual Congress which starts on Sunday. So, why am I here two days early? Again, to help do the business of the societies to which I belong.
Medical societies rely upon the work done by their "volunteer" leaders to support the mission and create the vision of the organization and the members. So, the leaders need to meet and discuss the business of the organization. Therefore, I am attending today the Council meeting for the Society of Critical Care Medicine, and tomorrow will be attendng the meeting of the executive committee of the American Academy of Pediatrics' Section on Critical Care.
More to come over the next week or so, here in sunny San Diego.
