Cyberounds® Assignment
Cyberounds® are interactive grand rounds moderated by distinguished academics, exclusively for physicians, medical students and other selected medical professionals.  They are accessed through the internet at  Once you have arrived at the sight you will need to register by following the instructions and then you will be given access to the site.  The registration period may take from minutes to days, depending on when you register, so don't wait until the last minute.

For your assignment, I have selected seven conferences, that I would like you to read. 

You can find these conferences by opening the Cyberounds location.  Register, if you haven't already, then go to the section on conferences (click the conference button) and then choose the nutrition section (click nutrition).  In this section, you will find a number of cases and discussions on nutritional subjects.  On December 29, 2000, the current conference was listed as Preventing Colon Cancer: Does Diet Matter? (If they add a new conference between December 29 and the day you access the site you will probably find this conference listed as a previous conference.) I would like you to read the conference on Preventing Colon Cancer: Does Diet Matter? (click current conference or the title of the conference) as well as the following six, that can be found by clicking the previous conference button.

1. 08/96 The Subtle Presentation of Vitamin B12 Deficiency
