The Body Covers:
The 35th Annual Meeting of the Infectious Diseases Society of America
Moscone Center, San Francisco, California

September 13-16, 1997

The Infectious Diseases Society of America (IDSA) is an organization of physicians, scientists, and other health care professionals dedicated to promoting human health through excellence in research, education, prevention, and care of patients. The Society pursues and represents the concerns of its membership by its organizational structure, journals, meetings, and additional activities.

In 1997, the Society's Scientific Program Committee presents its first stand-alone annual meeting which provides new opportunities for expanded programming and participation. Included in this year's program are plenary sessions, various concurrent symposia, slide and poster sessions offering opportunities for oral presentations of abstracts, and professional workshops and training courses.

The Society's Scientific Program Committee has attempted to cover the broad field of infectious diseases in a way that will be useful to academicians, clinicians, public health practitioners, and all others interested in infectious diseases.
