3rd Hemispheric Conference on Medical Geology

17 septiembre 2009

Dear Colleagues and Friends:

On behalf of the International Medical Geology Association (IMGA), the Uruguayan Society of Toxicology and Ecotoxicology and the Faculty of Chemistry from the Universidad de la Republica de Uruguay, we are pleased to invite you to participate in the 3rd Hemispheric Conference on Medical Geology, which will be held the week of October 12-16, 2009 in Montevideo, Uruguay.

The Hemispheric Conference on Medical Geology meeting was started as a contribution to the rapidly expanding and growing field of Medical Geology. Medical geology has numerous applications to the resolution of local, regional and global health issues. The aim of this 3rd Hemispheric Conference on Medical Geology (3rd HCMedGeo) is to promote interdisciplinary discussions, international scientific collaborations and to build up new personal contacts between medical geology researchers by bringing together scientists from South America, Central and North America, Canada, and the Caribbean Basin to share the most recent advances and latest information on Medical Geology research with particular emphasis on environmental and health problems afflicting this part of the globe.

The 1st HCMedGeo was organized in Puerto Rico with participation from over 50 delegates and with representation from each of the regions. The 2nd HCMedGeo was recently organized in Atibaia, Brazil with over 150 participants bringing together a wide range of disciplines in geosciences and biomedical research with particular interest on Medical Geology.

The Scientific Program for the 3rd HCMedGeo will be composed of plenary lectures, short courses, oral and poster presentations covering a diverse and multidisciplinary research agenda with topics including: soils, water, air and public health; environmental epidemiology, environmental monitoring, and disease surveillance; emerging and re-merging diseases and medical geology; topical diseases and their impact on human and animal health; geochemical mapping and human health databases; risk analysis and risk communication/management in medical geology; veterinary medicine and medical geology; environmental medicine, toxicology and environmental geochemistry; environmental and forensic geology; analytical toxicology (e.g., trace element speciation) and geochemical tools in medical geology; trace elements, metals and metalloids and nutrition; environmental bioremediation of contaminated sites.

On behalf of the organizers and sponsors for the 3rd HCMedGeo we look forward to welcome you to Montevideo, and to share with you what promises to be a highly scientifically stimulating and memorable event for the Americas.

Sincerely,

Prof. Dr. Nelly Mañay
General Chairwoman

Dr. Jose Centeno
Chairman International Scientific Committee
