Free Public Lecture

To coincide with the coming training event on the Gold Coast, ACNEM proudly presents an evening with Assoc Professor Ray Kearney, a free lecture for doctors and health professionals.

The Health Impacts of Fossil Fuels
This lecture will highlight the growing body of international and Australian scientific evidence of the risks posed to the public by traffic-related air pollution and the reasons why.

Assoc Prof Ray Kearney, OAM, until his retirement in 2006, was Associate Professor in the Department of Infectious Diseases and Immunology at the University of Sydney. He is a frequent keynote speaker at various national and international conferences and meetings, and lectures widely on health promotion and disease prevention.

"With your talents and industry, with science, and that steadfast honesty which eternally pursues right, regardless of consequences, you may promise yourself every thing but health, without which there is no happiness. An attention to health then should take place of every other object. The time necessary to secure this by active exercises, should be devoted to it in preference to every other pursuit."
Thomas Jefferson
