Description

A celebration of the life of John Garrow

We are honoured to host a short celebration of the life of John Garrow in London on Thursday 20th October. An eminent medical nutritionist with a passion for evidence, Professor Garrow was a founding member of the charity HealthWatch which promotes science and integrity in medicine. He was several-times chairman of HealthWatch and a man who fought for evidence with passion and style. Following his death in June this year, his family have kindly agreed to hold this memorial toast before the HealthWatch Annual General Meeting. His friends and colleagues from all spheres of his life (not just HealthWatch) are warmly invited to attend.

Please join us with the Garrow family to toast the life of John Garrow at 5:30pm on Thursday 20th October 2016 at the Medical Society of London, 11 Chandos Street, Cavendish Square, London W1G 9EB (nearest Underground stations are Bond St or Oxford Circus).

To help us with preparations, please confirm your attendance by clicking the REGISTER link above, right.

There is no compulsion to remain for the 28th Annual General Meeting of HealthWatch which begins shortly afterwards, although you are most welcome if you wish to do so. The evening will include presentation of awards to winners of the HealthWatch Student Competition, of which John was a great supporter, and to Cochrane scientist Dr Peter Gøtzsche, a choice of whom Professor Garrow would surely have approved. There is more information about the AGM and other HealthWatch events planned for the day here.
