The fifth annual New England Hellenic Medical and Dental Society Research Symposium is scheduled for Saturday, September 20th, 2002, 8:30 am - 1 pm, and will take place at the Sackler Center for Health Communications at Tufts University School of Medicine (Please see below for address and parking).

The preliminary program for this event will be posted on the NEHMDS web site (, featuring lecture presentations by established authorities in their fields, followed by a poster exhibition.

All medical, dental and allied health profession students, residents and fellows are particularly encouraged to submit current or previously published basic and/or clinical research, to be presented in poster format. Submissions from established investigators are also welcome. There will be a poster competition and a small number of awards will be presented to the best posters, thus concluding the event.
