On behalf of the Research Centers in Minority Institutions (RCMI) Program at Meharry Medical College and the Division of Research Infrastructure of the National Center for Research Resources, we are pleased to invite you to attend and participate in the 13th RCMI International Symposium on Health Disparities to convene December 9-13, 2012 in San Juan, Puerto Rico.
This four-day symposium has been designed to offer RCMI institutions and their participants an opportunity to share research information in areas related to cardiovascular disease, diabetes and obesity, cancer, women’s health, mental health, infectious disease, stroke, and behavioral and social health. This collaborative effort, expected to draw 400-450 participants, is sponsored by the National Center for Research Resources (NCRR) Division of Research Infrastructure and hosted by the RCMI Programs at the Ponce School of Medicine, Universidad Central Del Caribe, and University of Puerto Rico Medical Sciences Campus.
The local organizing committee looks forward to welcoming you to San Juan to share your experiences and knowledge. We also hope you will have time to enjoy what the city has to offer!
For the Committee,
