To help celebrate the anniversary, try your chance at winning a FREE Dr. Dolittle “What’s New in Comparative Physiology” t-shirt (image below)! To enter please write to Dr. Dolittle (drdlttl01@gmail.com) and explain why you are attending the meeting, what excites you about comparative physiology, and what you most look forward to at the meeting. Be sure to include proof of registration. A new winner will be chosen every week prior to EB and we will send you the t-shirt in time for you to wear it in San Diego.

This year, Dr. Dolittle will also be sponsoring $10 Starbucks gift cards for attendees who are caught wearing Dr. Dolittle promotional items at some point during the meeting by APS staffers or members of The American Physiological Society’s Communications Committee. These may include the “What’s New in Physiology” Dr. Dolittle t-shirt or any other visible means of showing your support for comparative physiology. The catch is, whatever you wear should say “Dr. Dolittle”, “Life Lines, or “Comparative Physiology.”
