If you haven’t been to an ICIM meeting before, you’re in for a treat! With a supportive family atmosphere, the best food in the industry, and colleagues passionate about science and healing, our learning environment is transformative.
Our next meeting is Oct 4-8, 2017 in Grand Rapids, MI: ”Neurodegeneration: The Impact of Environmental Insult.”
Topics to be covered include Dementia, Parkinson’s, MS, ALS, Autism, and Alzheimer’s. We anticipate being able to get CME credits for the lectures being given on Friday. Our goal for speakers is to have them give us an update relating to the topic including diagnostics and therapeutics. We like to be able to take away something that we can begin incorporating in our practices.
That weekend is when Art Prize is being held in downtown Grand Rapids. It is the largest event of its kind in the United States and perhaps the world. Thousands of artists from all over display their artwork inside and outside depending on the type of art. Every medium imaginable is represented. The last few years have included music as well. There is major prize money for the winning artists.
Grand Rapids is also home of the Van Andel Research Institute which focuses on innovative Cancer Research and Parkinsonism. Because of that Michigan State Medical School is now in Grand Rapids.
We hope you can join us for an inspiring weekend to re-invigorate your practice of medicine and spark your imagination.
