Bay Area Life Science Events the Next Two Weeks Plus Events and Jobs

Bay Area Life Science organizations are taking a vacation from events this coming week, but meetings will return the week after Thanksgiving. See details for all events listed in Audrey’s Picks through March 2015.

Meanwhile, there is one broadcast from BioCentury This Week which discusses access to obesity medicines As I prepare pies and cakes in preparation for the large celebration meal Thursday and the weekend, I am aware that I’m straying from my own advice about a balance in diet and exercise. But I know that I’ll be able to lose those extra pounds with a return to my usual patterns. For many suffering from being overweight, it isn’t so easy to lose that extra life threatening weight.
