I Köln’t Believe I Bonn There

This week starts back at the World Health Summit for two more days of conferencing. There’s enough going on that the program is a 150 page behemoth (if a murder would’ve happened at the conference, my money would’ve been on Colonel Mustard in the forum with the Summit program).
