DATA...coming to the Heartland. @ 04:23 pm

hapavox:
I was informed yesterday by my Dept. Chairman here in the Hospital that I work in that I'll be attending the DATA Conference(both days) to be held here in Chicago on December 3rd & 4th 2002. I'm really excited to hear Bono and other Activists lecture and speak on the issue of Debt, Aids, and Trading with Africa. I'm a 3rd Year(M3) Medical Student and my school decided to have this conference as part of the clinical hours needed for completion of this year.

Hopefully, I'll have a full report in my journal on both days of the event.

For more info. On DATA visit http://www.datadata.org

As far as I know...it's open to the public but tickets are limited on a first come first serve basis. The department I work for, in conjunction with the School of Medicine, has already secured tickets for a whole group of us...we're just not guranteed seating because I'm sure others will be camping overnight in wherever building it's going to be held in(probably somewhere in downtown or on a university campus somewhere). Already, the University of Nebraska-Lincoln first stop of the DATA "Heartland Tour" 'sold-out' in 17 minutes according to a newspaper article.

Keep checking the DATA site above or http://youtwo.net for more details on the distribution of conference tickets and exact venues it will be held in for the upcoming Chicago stop. I'm still not sure where in the city it will be held but I've got a ticket already but no listing of venue just yet.

My exact sentiments completely. Originally, the department that's sending a group of us to the conference didn't even know what or who was lecturing or speaking in the 2-day events here in the city. My "boss" said that it was just a promotional newsletter from the DATA Organization and no further details were announced. Thus, Bono's apperance as well as Ashley Judd(what does she actually know?) surprise listing and apperance on this hearltand jaunt is a complete shock for most people. I'm hoping that their message cuts across well in this great midwestern section of the U.S.

Again, as you know by now...it is Chicago...lots of U2 fans here...*5* U2 shows on the last tour here alone...site of the 1st Ever U2 Chicago Fan Convention--Hillside,Illinois 1996...and definitely one of the band's favorite cities to visit. The DATA Conference and the Bono appearance will cause a row and have a mixed bag of people who are either attending for the RIGHT or WRONG reasons like any other 'celebrity-lead' cause.

Hope you can attend either one of the dates.

Bastardo! How lucky you are. Give Bono a kiss for me, and another for him to pass on to Adam. Hehe. ;)

It's confirmed now as to where it's going to be held here in the City.
