The 2nd International Health Span Hawaii Summit (www.healthspanhawaii.com) convenes in Honolulu from November 3–5, 2019, at the Hawaii Convention Center.

Dr. Mario Capecchi, winner of the 2007 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine, will be keynote speaker along with Hawaii Lieutenant Governor Josh Green. The Summit will have improvement of patient health span as an overriding theme, with several principal focal tracks from which attendees may choose, among them:

  • Oncology
  • Cardiology
  • Neurology
  • Orthopædics
  • Healthspan and wellness extension
  • Regenerative Medicine
  • Health Travel
  •  

    Dr. Michele Carbone of the University of Hawaii (UH) John A. Burns School of Medicine at the UH Cancer Center invites JABSOM MD and UH Graduate students and faculty to submit abstracts for consideration. For students or young investigators, there are four Poster Presentation opportunities and a chance to compete for Poster Presentation Awards. In addition, the winners will have their award presented to them by Dr. Mario Capecchi, along with an opportunity to meet with him.

    The Young Investigator Forum offers young investigators the opportunity to meet and discuss research topics, review methodologies, develop ideas, and to gain knowledge from their peers and senior researchers.

    Reminder: Candidates applying for the Young Investigator Award should be a registered attendee. **Updated: Registration Fees have been reduced for both Students and Faculty for the Health Span Hawaii Summit. Student rate is now only $50, and Faculty can use the special Discount Code for UH: “faculty” when they register as Kamaaina and receive a 25% discount automatically. (see website)

    More Information:
    According to Dr. Carbone, Young Investigator Sessions are organized at the Health Span Hawaiʻi Summit 2019, to provide a unique platform for Young Investigators for presenting the latest research projects with an in-depth analysis. HSHS cordially invites Young Investigators from Universities/Institutes/Industries to present a short oral presentation during the forum. These oral presentations should be of 10 minutes duration in related scientific track followed by 5 minute question period. Presenters are encouraged to give comprehensive and dynamic talks. Applications will be selected based on past research productivity and future promise.
