Lambie Dew Oration
3 September 2007
Professor Chris O’Brien, a Faculty of Medicine alumni, will speak about the need for change in cancer care at this year's Lambie Dew Oration on Wednesday 5 September.
Professor O'Brien was the head of the Sydney Cancer Institute and a regular on the RPA television series until late last year when he was diagnosed as having glioblastoma multi-forme.
Professor O'Brien's speech is entitled: "The need for change in cancer care: an appraisal of organisational and treatment paradigms from both sides of the fence."
The oration is hosted by the Sydney University Medical Society. It is given each year by an esteemed individual who has made a significant contribution to the field of medicine and health or, by someone whose experiences in either of these fields, be it personally or by association, have given them a perspective that we would like them to share. Previous speakers have included Professor Peter Doherty, Mr Jeff McMullen, Professor Marie Bashir, Professor Fred Hollows and Justice Michael Kirby.
The speech will be held at the Great Hall, doors open at 7:00 and the speech begins at 7:30. Admission is free but please RSVP.
