I arrived in Seattle late yesterday for the national AHIMA conference. It’s 6:00 a.m. here and because I’m on NY time I’ve been up for hours already. Looks like personalized medicine and genetics is going to be a big deal at the conference--I’ll report back on some of the panels later today. Seattle is a beautiful city from what I've seen so far. When I got here yesterday, I went for a long walk to check out the city and apparently some big GAME had just let out. It was very disconcerting because I kept seeing people walking around with large wedges of cheese on their heads. Why, God, why? I’m sure this has some meaning, and I hope it has nothing to do with genetics.
