Determinants of Chronic Diseases:  Common Problems in Different Cultures

This year's symposium will feature keynote speakers, breakout discussions, and posters sessions for JI and non-JI researchers. Last year, almost 60 University of Michigan community members from six schools and colleges were able to join their Chinese colleagues in attending the symposium hosted by the Peking University Health Science Center (PUHSC). We anticipate the same wonderful representation as the University of Michigan Health System (UMHS) welcomes its PUHSC partners.
