A taste of Calgary for IAIA 2013

The annual rodeo and bacchanal known as the Calgary Stampede kicked off today with a parade attended by over 400,000 people, most of them in cowboy hats, fortunately few in chaps.    For the next 10 days, Calgary business just about shuts down unless it is being conducted at a bar or behind some haybales.  The IAIA annual meeting will be held in Calgary in May 2013, with a beefed up (pun fully intended) health component, including a 2-day HIA advanced masterclass, special health theme forums, and a fantastic health section-only party hosted by Habitat Health Impact Consulting. It may seem far away, but it is not too early to start planning and getting excited.
