High 5 for Us!!

Tuesday at ISQua started with an interesting plenary session discussing healthcare quality reform initiatives in Colombia and Brazil. Next up were the ISQua Accreditation Awards where the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Alberta was one of ~10 organizations acknowledged in the session. Liz and I were very proud to receive this validation of our laboratory standards.

During the day, we attended some very interesting presentations in the accreditation track and toured the exhibit area.

While we were at the conference, Harvey and Glen wandered around Barra, checking out cars and other sites.

We met up with the boys and headed to Ipanema Beach where we stopped at a few shops and then had a bite to eat at the Devassa Grill.

The beach at Ipanema is similar to Copacabana – wide with lots of white sand and people enjoying the sun.

We watched the sunset while enjoying caipirinhas and cervejas and then returned to Barra where we stopped in next door at Fratellis for a late night snack!
