The CGI Meeting has been fantastic. One of my clients, AmeriCares - a nonprofit international disaster relief organization - announced yesterday at CGI its commitment to promote the health and safety of health care workers in Tanzania. AmeriCares is launching a $3.6 million program to help health care workers protect themselves while they care for patients. Should be a great initiative.
