Really Rapid Review — Brisbane IAS 2023

Lamington National Park, Queensland.

You’ll find some conference highlights listed below from the 12th International AIDS Society Conference on HIV Science (or IAS 2023), which took place in lovely Brisbane — where the late July weather was delightful, the ubiquitous ibis was the local nuisance bird, and the riverside parks went on and on and on.

Some might wonder if I can still use the patented, trademarked, and copyrighted Really Rapid Review™ title when I’ve been home from Australia for a whole week. I vote yes — after all, I lost a whole day getting there, and deserve some of that time back. No, my Saturday, July 22, did not exist.

Most links will bring you to the invaluable site, long may it exist in its delightfully retro late-1990s format.

That’s a wrap! What did I miss?

After the conference, we went hiking in Lamington (see picture above) and Springbrook National Parks. So beautiful! Saw wallabies and cockatoos and kookaburras!

Now, if only someone could come up with a cure for jet lag …

    Great summary!
    I would take the hypertension data with a lot of caution… the measurement is not standardized in most clinical settings, and the proportion of elevation not necessarily will have a clinical impact. Additionally, not adjusted for increase of weight.
