The IMO will be holding a number of winter meetings to discuss current and pending issues for Public Health and Community Medicine Doctors.

The schedule for these meetings is as follows:

Given the widespread indications that there will be further, likely deep, reductions in the health budget for the 2013 fiscal year I would encourage as many Public Health and Community Medicine Doctors as possible to attend these meetings.
