3 week countdown

Start date = 17Jun2013.  I am getting very excited about starting.  I have been speaking with the staff and first up – report to the DC office and get my cube, email address, badge and all that.

The next day right into it – I will be attending an international conference in Potomac, Maryland.  The conference sounds very interesting – 

I look forward to greeting you all in the United States for our CHOICES Scale-up meeting.   The Institute for Reproductive Health is also excited to work with you all and help facilitate our thinking on how to take CHOICES from a pilot project to larger scale implementation.  The two days we spend together will be guided by the World Health Organization’s Expand Net model.    In order to make our two days move faster and help us understand the key concepts in the Expand Net model.

This is what I will be helping on.  It will be a great introduction.  Then even better – on Thursday off to Sweden House – which is the embassy for Sweden and covers for Iceland too.  I will be    Interagency Youth Working Group – not sure what that means but I am sure it will fascinating.
