I am not personally as excited about a second national bed bug summit as I was about the first one in 2009 (when giddy would have been an appropriate description), but obviously (or perhaps not so obviously) I think a meeting like this can only be good, and do some good. Sharon Heath is again presenting for the NYC Department of Health and again I want to mention how great we think she is. The education and communication section seems promising, among others.
There is definitely a need to move swiftly beyond strategizing into action, but that is, you know, quite the commonplace thought. Doesn’t make it less true.
