Monthly Meetings, Speakers Programme
Our physical Monthly Meetings have been suspended due to Covid-19 but instead we have created a programme of speakers who will present to us online using Zoom. How long the programme will run like this will depend on the unwinding rate of lockdown.

The main Talk will start at 10.00am and run to 11.00 — see the details below. It's suggested you log in and join the meeting at least five minutes before the scheduled start time. There will only be the one topic, the main speaker. The Zoom invitation to these meetings will be sent to all members in the Bulletin.

DATE
MONTHLY MEETING PROGRAMME:
12 Aug
Lynda Ware: "Two bars of chocolLynda Wareate a day can slash the risk of heart attack and stroke................really?" Lynda is a Senior Fellow in General Practice at Cochrane UK. She was a GP partner in rural Oxfordshire for over 30 years with particular interest in psychiatry and women's health, joining Cochrane UK in 2014, and has delivered many presentations to non-medical audiences about evidence-based medicine. She also educates school students and encourages critical thinking around healthcare claims made in the media. She blogs on www.evidentlycochrane.net. Lynda will explore what evidence-based medicine is all about and why it is important. We will hear examples of disasters caused by lack of evidence and how drug licensing laws help ensure that treatments are safe and effective. She will use media headlines to look behind what we are told.

Pub Lunches

iU3A's pub lunches provide an opportunity for members to meet each other in a social atmosphere. They take place monthly, around Islington. If you are buying a lunch the cost is around £10 to £12 with drinks being extra. If you'd like to come along to one of these please email Howard Stone here for more information or to reserve your place.

Howard StoneAll those held so far have attracted about 15 iU3A members, who've enjoyed some good chat. While originally conceived to attract more male members there has been good support from the women members. Do come along and join us.

Pub lunches are now a 'group' and details of their schedule can now be found in Beacon.
