December 11, Alternative Medicine versus Science: Winners and Losers (ASCSA Public Event)

The Australian Science Communicators (South Australia) is holding a public event on Tuesday December 11 from 6 pm, Alternative Medicine versus Science: Winners and Losers

The presentations will examine Pseudoscience, particularly in the context of Medicine. Our distinguished panel comprises real scientists and science communicators, all with a healthy disrespect for those who would tout snake oil. It promises to be a cracking good night.

I'm one of the presenters, and I'll be giving you a small dose of homoeopathy. The others are:
Professor Rob Morrison (Science Communicator): What and why about Friends of Science in medicine; why pseudosciences are not science
Tory Shepherd (Journalist, The Advertiser): Pseudoscience and the public, the media angle
Professor  Marcello Costa (Prof of Neurophysiology, School of Medicine, Flinders University): Moving science into the medical arena
Professor Alastair MacLennan (Professor of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, Faculty of Health Sciences, University of Adelaide): In depth case studies for medical impact on women/children’s health

The Science Exchange 
55 Exchange Pl Adelaide, SA 5000 Australia
Tuesday, December 11, 2012 from 6:00 PM to 7:30 PM (CST)
