IMGS 2013

The Geography Department at Michigan State University hosted the XVth International Symposium in Medical/Health Geography (IMGS 2013) on our campus in East Lansing, Michigan, July 7-12, 2013. It was a fun and productive symposium. Plenary, paper, and poster sessions were held in the Kellogg Hotel and Conference Center on campus. Our field trip included a visit to the sand dunes from the glacial period and beach picnic on the shores of Lake Michigan.
