Dear Colleague,

The first time in the history of the Southern Regional Meetings, the Southern Regional Meeting will not be held in New Orleans due to the destruction caused by Hurricane Katrina. The Southern Regional Meetings will be held March 3-5, 2006 at the Hilton Atlanta in Atlanta, Georgia. The Southern Regional Meetings promote excellence in both clinical and basic investigation. The three-day meeting will begin on Friday morning with a workshop on Manuscript Preparation and Peer-Reviewed Publication with other workshops offered in the afternoon: Transforming Teaching into Scholarship, Introduction to Molecular Techniques: Basic Principles of Gene Regulation and Expression Analyses, and the SSGIM Precourse entitled How to Succeed in Academic Medicine. Also on Friday afternoon, there will be a Pediatric and Adult Medicine Clinical Case Symposia and a Cardiovascular Case Report Session. All meeting attendees are welcome to attend any of the workshops/symposia being offered. The Joint Poster Session will be held on Friday evening, followed by specialty club meetings.

SSPR and Joint SSCI/SAFMR Plenary Sessions as well as the APA Sponsored Workshop will be held on Saturday morning followed by specialty club luncheons. In the afternoon, there will be Concurrent Subspecialty Scientific Sessions including State-of-the-Art presentations.

Sunday's activities will kick-off with the Joint Plenary Session entitled Obesity: The Basic and Clinical Research Supporting Public Policy and Current and Future Therapies. Following these programs, a Disaster Preparedness and Management Luncheon will be held and is open to all attendees. In the afternoon, there will be additional Concurrent Subspecialty Scientific Sessions and State-of-the-Art presentations. Please refer to the “Program-at-a-Glance” on the following page for further details on all of the exciting scientific sessions offered at this meeting.
