Laguna HIlls, Calif. (PRWEB) November 01, 2012 – Dr. Alan O. Marcus, endocrinologist for South Orange County Endocrinology, will present at the American Institution for Oral Biology (AIOB) 69th Annual Conference this weekend in Palm Springs, Calif. Dr. Marcus has the distinction and honor of presenting The Philip J. Boyne Lecture at the AIOB conference. The conference will take place from November 2 – November 4, 2012 at the Hilton Hotel Palms Springs.

The Special Presentation Seminar of the AIOB was renamed the Philip J. Boyne Lecture in 2008, to honor the late Dr. Philip J. Boyne, Emeritus Professor of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery in the School of Dentistry at Loma Linda University. Dr. Boyne was the consummate scientist, clinician and mentor.

“The speaker for this lecture is chosen to present a broad, state-of-the-art, all-encompassing view of a particular field or groundbreaking research,” according to the AIOB Winter 2009 Newsletter.

“One of Dr Boyne’s most important traits as an investigator, and collaborator, was his honesty in reporting the negative as well as positive outcomes of the materials and procedures that he was studying,” according to Myron Spector in Biomedical Materials Vol. 3, No. 3.“

According to the AIOB website, Oral Biology is not a specialized field, but rather is a union of disciplines that seeks to apply knowledge to the daily practice of dentistry and medicine. It encourages the consideration of clinical problems as involving the whole individual rather than as a simple concern of regional pathology.

As a clinician, researcher and author of scientific papers, Dr. Alan Marcus heads South Orange County Endocrinology medical practice specializing in the treatment of diabetes, infertility, thyroid and metabolic disorders.

Dr. Marcus’s Conference Speaking Schedule:
2:30-4:40 p.m.        Dr. Alan Marcus     The Philip J. Boyne Lecture – “Diabetes: What Is It and Why Does It Matter?”

10:00-10:50 a.m.             Dr. Alan Marcus – “Abnormal Glucose and Its Effect on Health from the Cell to the Population”
11:00-11:50 a.m.    Drs. Caplanis/Marcus        Discussion Forum
