AIBS, in conjunction with the National Evolutionary Synthesis Center (NESCent), will host the Fourth Annual Evolution Symposium at the National Association of Biology Teachers Annual Conference on 1 December at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Atlanta, Georgia. The theme for the 2007 symposium is "Evolution: Applications in Human Health and Populations." Speakers will present current information about the role of evolution in disease, medicine, and human health, and discuss the ethical questions these issues pose.
NESCent will supply attendees with an instructional CD-ROM that is being developed specifically for this symposium. It will contain teaching resources, curricular materials, video and audio clips, and other useful tools for the classroom.
The speakers and their presentation titles, in order of appearance, are as follows:
