International Congress on Infectious Diseases- Hyderabad, India: Day 3

The 3rd day of ICID started off with some excellent lectures. 

One of particular interest was on the evolving promise of rapid diagnostic testing in resource poor settings, by Dr. Vanya Gant of University College of London Hospitals. The lecture emphasized, among other things, the difference between point of care vs. point of decision testing, where the latter potentially has a more meaningful impact on clinical care.

The afternoon was spent sightseeing in Hyderabad with visits to the 400 year old Charminar Monument, the Mecca Masjid (mosque) completed in 1694, and the Ghanzi Bazaar. 

The long day was capped off with the ICID Presidential dinner.

My lecture is tomorrow afternoon. 

I am looking forward to it.
