Greetings from the swanky Harbourcastle Westin hotel in Toronto, my home town. I’m attending the joint meeting of the Canadian Society of Epidemiology and Biostatistics and the (American) Society for Epidemiological Research.

I love these conferences. I never expect to see anyone I know, but I always end up meeting some fun people. And did I mention that my profession tends to attract very attractive women? Add that datum to the fact that Toronto is experiencing a heat wave right now and I’m sure you can visualize the conference now.

Oh yeah, the science is pretty good, too. And since I’ve recently become aware that many of my co-workers read this blog, including members of the senior management team, let me emphasize that I am also well representing my new employer –the Ontario Centre of Excellence for Child/Youth Mental Health– by handing out lots of business cards and pressing a lot of flesh.

I’m in a session on air pollution right now (ahh, the magic of wireless internet), which is not too bad. But as I gor up at 5am to go to the gym, my attention is really strained right now.

I will check in with you later. In the mean time, here’s a scary link from my brother. Good thing I’m in Canada!
