Dr. Nina Jablonski – Opening Keynote

Nina Jablonski is a biological anthropologist who is recognized for her contributions to the understanding of primate and human evolution, especially to questions not answered directly from the fossil record. A dedicated public scientist and science educator, Jablonski received an honorary doctorate from the University of Stellenbosch in South Africa in 2010 for her contribution to the worldwide fight against racism.

Friday August 11 - Sunday, August 13

Parallel sessions covering the latest and greatest in a single topic area. We’ve taken attendee feedback and pared down the number of sessions offered at once, so you can easily go to what’s important and relevant to you, without feeling like you’re missing out.

Derm Tank (Friday, August 11)
A fun, engaging session where presenters pitch their product or procedure to a panel of judges for a chance to win $10,000. We'll be offering snacks and drinks too, so make yourself "at-home" as you enjoy the dermatology version of Shark Tank.
