Tomorrow evening begins a long journey to the other side of the earth for me (literally). As part of a group of volunteers for the US CDC, I am spending the next couple of weeks in Zambia. While there I will be working with a local developer team on a medical records history and treatment tracking WinForms .Net application (called SmartCare). After arriving in Lusaka, the plan is to meet with the local head of the CDC and to head out to a small, local clinic in Macha (which is near Choma on this map). Look for updates on the blog as the trip progresses.
