“One of the best meetings I have ever attended”
“Hearing about a vast variety of topics, many of which have inspired me to look into new types of research as well as incorporating it into my teaching.”
“Fantastic. I feel like I learned a lot more in 3 days here than in 3 months of medical school. Especially about the placenta...wow!”
“Great vibe! Extremely multi-disciplinary. Extremely exciting and intellectually stimulating. Great number of breaks which allowed us all to meet and talk”
“All sessions well attended and a high level of audience interest throughout. In most medicine meetings talks are little attended and most people are more interested in roaming around. This meeting was a pleasant surprise.”
“One of the things that made this meeting very special was the excitement and enthusiasm of participants. It was a valuable reminder of how science can be so fun. As someone who has an interest in only a small fraction of what might be considered Evolutionary Medicine, the meeting was an opportunity to learn more about the broad scope of the field. It was a nice chance to consider how my view of what evmed is matches with others. ”
