inFLAME Annual Meetings

Following successful meetings in Southampton, UK (2012), Washington DC, USA (2103), Cape Town, South Africa (2014), Marburg, Germany (2015), Maastricht, The Netherlands (2016), and New York (2017), the WUN in-FLAME Network will convene for their 7th annual meeting in Canmore, Canada. 

As always, the main goal of the meeting will be to create a collaborative space for creative discussions, productive partnerships and long-term friendships. 

The theme of the meeting, “Transforming Life: Unifying Personal, Public and Planetary Health”, underscores the imperative to address global ‘dysbiotic drift’ – life in distress – on every level.
