RE Midwest Conference on Diabetes and Obesity

Dear Colleagues and Students,

The Institute of Medicine (IOM) of the National Academies and UIC will be co-hosting the Midwest Conference on Diabetes and Obesity on Tuesday, September 21, 2010. This is the first time the IOM is co-sponsoring a full day conference in conjunction with its regional meeting.

The IOM-UIC Midwest Conference on Diabetes and Obesity will bring together leading scientists, physicians and community health experts. Causes, treatment, preventive measures and policy issues will be discussed by participants from academia, industry and government. The conference is co-sponsored by the IOM, UIC, and the UIC College of Medicine and generously supported by Dr. Bruce and Marilyn Gillis and the Washington Square Health Foundation.

I am honored to have the opportunity to host this gathering at UIC and to further showcase the tremendous and significant contributions our campus makes to the health of our city, state, nation and the world.

Details of the program and registration are online.

I hope you will be able to join us for what promises to be an important event.


Paula Allen-Meares
