The 2016 ISEMPH meeting held in Durham, North Carolina, just finished up today. We had over 250 attendees from a dozen countries (at least) and great representation by physicians, nurses, evolutionary biologists, anthropologists, evolutionary psychologists, historians, science writers, residents, and graduate students. I was happy to see old friends and make a bunch of new ones. Next year we will hold the annual meeting in Groningen, Netherlands August 18-20, 2017.
If you missed this year’s conference, many of us wrote brief summaries of all the sessions from the meeting. All the summaries of the sessions are available at the Evolution and Medicine Review. Links will take you to descriptions of plenary lectures by Josh Schiffman, Marty Blaser, and Helen Ball. I will post more individual links of the plenaries here when I get them.
