Science in the Pub

Sunday, 13 August, 2000

Science in the Pub and the Australian Biotechnology Association present `New Millennium Medicine: Alternative or Genetic?' This presentation will be compered by ABC Quantum's reporter Dr Paul Willis who will lead the discussion from 7.00 to 9.00pm on Wednesday, 30 August 2000 at the Harlequin Inn, 152 Harris Street, Pyrmont.

The discussion will look at the future of medicine. On the one hand medical technology is becoming more sophisticated while on the other, there is increasing access to indigenous medicines from around the world (facilitated by travel and growing cultural exchange). Many of these indigenous medicines form a key part of the public health system (eg traditional Chinese medicine). Research is now demonstrating the effectiveness of some of these practices.

Healthcare consumers are benefiting from diverse and informed choices, but which way will it go? Professor John Shine, Executive Director of the Garvan Institute of Medical Research and Professor of both Medicine and Molecular Biology at UNSW, and Mr Alan Bensoussan, Head, Research Institute for Complementary Medicine at the University of Western Sydney will attempt to find the answer to this and many more questions in this presentation.
