Health talk takes place in the High­lanes

Drogheda Independent - - NEWS -

AL­WAYS ex­plor­ing and cu­ri­ous, High­lanes Gallery is mark­ing Sci­ence Week with a part­ner­ship with the Sci­ence Gallery Dublin and a spe­cial event with Daragh O’Neill from Clann Med­i­cal, Drogheda.

Vac­cines, Health, Trust and Ev­i­dence is the ti­tle of the panel ses­sion which will take place on Sat 17th Novem­ber, 1pm - 2.30pm.

Vac­cines, ac­cord­ing to the Bri­tish Med­i­cal Jour­nal, rep­re­sent one of the most the most sig­nif­i­cant med­i­cal ad­vances of the last 150 years along­side san­i­ta­tion, an­tibi­otics, and anaes­the­sia. Yet some peo­ple still have ques­tions about vac­cines, and in some com­mu­ni­ties, anti-vac­ci­na­tion sen­ti­ment is grow­ing even though The World Health Or­gan­i­sa­tion has shown that the ben­e­fits of vac­cines far out­weigh the risks.

Why are vac­cines es­sen­tial to our health and well­be­ing? What role does trust play in the pub­lic di­a­logue about vac­cines? What does the ev­i­dence say?

Sci­ence Gallery at Trin­ity Col­lege Dublin have gath­ered a panel of ex­perts to ex­plore these ques­tions and more. The dis­cus­sion will be bro­ken into two parts — giv­ing an op­por­tu­nity to dig deeper and ex­plore this sig­nif­i­cant sci­en­tific con­tri­bu­tion to pub­lic health. The panel at High­lanes Gallery in Drogheda will be mod­er­ated by Dr. Anne Moore, Re­searcher and Lec­turer of Bio­chem­istry in UCC, Kingston Mills who is an Im­mu­ni­sa­tion Reg­u­la­tion Re­searcher at Trin­ity Col­lege Dublin and Dr Daragh O’Neill of Clann Med­i­cal in Drogheda. These events are sup­ported by SFI and are part of Sci­ence Week 2018, with book­ing on Eventbrite and places free.
