    The 87th Annual Meeting of the Georgia Public Health Association (GPHA) was held in Atlanta, Georgia, on March 22-23, 2016, with pre-conference (March 21st) and post-conference (March 23rd) Executive Board meetings. As Georgia’s leading forum for public health researchers, practitioners, and students, the annual meeting of the GPHA brings together participants from across the state to explore recent developments in the field and to exchange techniques, tools, and experiences. In recent years the venue for the GPHA annual conference has been Atlanta, with the 2017 GPHA Annual Meeting and Conference also scheduled to be held in Atlanta. Several new initiatives were highlighted as part of this year’s conference. These included three pre-conference workshops, expansion of academic sponsorships, an enhanced exhibit hall integrated with the poster sessions, silent auction, breaks and President’s Reception, an information booth, and an inaugural administration section track. The 2016 Annual Meeting & Conference added the Certified in Public Health (CPH) Continuing Education (CE) designation. The theme for the conference was Understanding Public Health: Research, Evidence and Practice, which reflects the science of public health

    The Vasco da Gama Movement : reflections and experiences of an exchange programme

    Get PDF
    The Vasco da Gama Movement (VdGM) defines itself as the Network for Young and Future Family Doctors of the European Regional Branch of the World Organisation of Family Doctors (WONCA Europe). The early beginnings of this movement date back to 2002 during preparations for the Junior Doctor Programme initiated by Dr Alphonse Sips, a dedicated Dutch family doctor, as part of the 2003 WONCA Europe Amsterdam Conference. Together with a group of enthusiastic trainees from the Netherlands and support from the European Academy of Teachers in General Practice/Family Medicine (EURACT), Dr Sips went on to develop the first pre-conference meeting for six international groups, each involving trainees and EURACT teachers to serve as guides. This laid the foundations for the development of the VdGM (Vasco Da Gama Movement, 2012; Sloane, 2016)). The ideals of the movement were set out in 2005 during a meeting that took place in Lisbon, the home of Vasco da Gama, from where he set out on a similar voyage of discovery and thus the name was born. Successful pre-conferences preceding the WONCA Europe Conference have been held annually since. Furthermore, VdGM has continued to grow and expand from then on to include a vast range of other events and activities, all with the aim of improving general practitioner (GP) empowerment, connection and support.peer-reviewe

    Nearly 20 years after the first meeting of the Society in Tunanda in 1986 and more than 10 years after the Internationonal Arachnological Congress in Brisbane, in 1993, there will be another ‘reunion’ of the Australasian Arachnological Society. As part of the Combined Australian Entomological Society, Society of Australian Systematic Biologists and Invertebrate Biodiversity and Conservation Conference (Australian National University, Canberra) from 4-9 December 2005, we are organizing a symposium ‘Australasian Arachnology – Evolution, Ecology and Conservation’ Currently, there are two sessions earmarked for this symposium, however, the final format will be determined by the number of participants. Please register your interest with the conference organisers. A call of abstracts will be sent out in June (for details please check: http://www.invertebrates2005.com)
