The International Society for Evolution, Medicine, & Public Health is convening our fourth annual conference in spectacular Park City, Utah this summer. Health professionals, researchers, teachers and students from many scientific disciplines from around the world will gather to share their ideas, approaches and research findings at the intersection of evolutionary biology, medicine, and public health.
The main goals of this conference are to:
1) Catalyze new discoveries in the rapidly growing field of evolutionary medicine - including evolutionary dynamics of cancer, the microbiome, antibiotic resistance, infectious disease, health behavior, and much more!
2) Create new connections and increase the awareness of this exciting, important, and high impact area of scientific inquiry.
