The UWA Dental School is delighted to host Professor W. Murray Thomson as the 2019 AJ Herman Fellowship Lecturer. 

Professor Thomson will be speaking on the topic of “Poor oral health casts a long shadow: findings from the Dunedin Study”

Overview of the topic
Imagine what we could find out about oral health if we followed an entire birth cohort from the cradle to the grave. The Dunedin Multidisciplinary Health and Development Study is one such study, having followed 1037 individuals born in Dunedin in 1972-3, with the most recent assessments undertaken at age 45. It has produced unprecedented and important information on the natural history of oral health and disease through the life course. In this presentation, Professor Thomson will share some findings from that study.

RSVP is mandatory. Please contact Jane Burnell at events-dent-ohcwa@uwa.edu.au by 5.00pm Tuesday 12 November 2019.

Light refreshments will be served from 6.00pm with the lecture commencing at 6.30pm. Further information is in the flyer

This is an excellent, complimentary continuing education event brought to you by the UWA Dental School.
