The Science Forum is a new group, currently acting as a sub group under Science and Technology in order to get it going, but its future is entirely in the hands of those of you who want to take it somewhere. It is intended to really embody the true spirit of the U3A with the ethos of inquiring and self-help learning. It is a small informal group which will hopefully ask questions and find the answers, with members learning more about the world around them.
It is intended to be a small and intimate group, say 12-15 people and the opportunities for individuals to really take part are much improved. However, if numbers are greater than this we will not be turning people away, but the format may have to be varied. Time will tell how this is going to work but under Graham Cairns leadership it is a very interesting proposition. The frequency of meetings has yet to be agreed as has the format, but do come along and help steer this group in a new direction. Meetings will be held at the Liss Triangle Centre at 1400 hrs on the 1st Wed of the month. See "Events" for more details.

|Wed Jun 12th||"A discussion on the "History of Medicine" with Dr John Nichols leading with his own personal bias as to who made an important contribution, such as Francesco Redi. He hopes to have a discussion with us regarding why medicine went into decline after Hippocrates and did not pick up until the Enlightenment with doctors such as William Harvey, Edward Jenner and Louis Pasteur.|
Dr Nichols was a GP in Guildford for 42 years. He has a Masters in Nutritional Medicine and his excellent book "Nutrition and Science" has recently been published. He has collaborated with university colleagues on a number of research projects." Liss Triangle Centre at 1400 hrs on Wed 12th June, entry £1.
