What a great conference!
The biennial Collaborating Across Borders conference was held this year at the sprawling El Conquistador Hotel and Resort in Tucson, Arizona and it was amazing in many ways.
Tucson is a stunningly beautiful place and there were so many people attending the conference that the hotel was over-booked and some attendees had to stay at other nearby hotels.
For those who haven’t heard about it, CAB is the “third Canada—United States joint conference focusing on an exploration of common issues around interprofessional education (IPE) and practice (IPP).” The first event happened in Minneapolis in 2007 and the last one was in Halifax in 2009.
The event has grown over the years and it appears the enthusiasm and momentum for IPE/P in North America will only continue to grow.
The CIHC was represented by a strong contingent at CABIII and contributed many presentations. Our booth was one of the busiest, too.
We all want to thank the organizers of CABIII for doing such an amazing job and for providing the opportunity for the IPE/P community in North America to continue to grow and develop. We met many amazing people during the conference and we look forward to developing these new relationships over the next few years.
We would also like to draw your attention to two future events that we are very excited about.
A) All Together Better Health (ATBH VI): Kobe, Japan. 5-8 October 2012.
B) Collaborating Across Borders IV: Vancouver, Canada. Summer 2013.
Hope to see you there. More info coming soon.
