More “live from Las Vegas” and the APH Conference:
Spent yesterday in a small-group intensive workshop with Pat McNees on doing bigger/bigger budget projects. Got to know ten of our members much better, reaffirming what I’ve learned from my personal history work–there’s a surprise inside every one of us: some life experience, value, or aspiration you never would’ve suspected. (Pet a tiger, anyone?)
I learned about different individuals’ specialties and past professional experience, giving me a much better sense of to whom I could refer work or subcontract tasks of my own. And I think I was converted to a “medical geek” by Pat’s fascinating tales of her work writing histories for the National Institutes of Health and University of Maryland School of Medicine.
Thanks, Pat, for bringing us together!
