The number of members of the Council for Nutritional and Environmental Medicine (CONEM) is growing, and its representation is being surely spread. On the 13th March this year, CONEM was enriched by a new branch member – the Algerian Society for Nutrition and Orthomolecular Medicine (SANMO). This society was founded in 2009 by Ilyès Baghli, MD, who has recently been re-elected to the presidency of this society.

SANMO’s mission is education in and promotion of the science of nutrition and orthomolecular medicine, including those via TV and press conferences and publication of newsletters and books on orthomolecular medicine. Presently, there are over 120 members of SANMO in Algeria.

Let us all congratulate and welcome SANMO as an Algerian branch of CONEM!
