RPH Research Foundation invites you to join their latest FREE event 'Sex, Drugs & Rock 'n' Roll: Coming of Age in the COVID-19 Era' on Wednesday 16th September 2020 from 1:00 pm at City of Perth Library Auditorium.
This engaging public lecture will feature the participation of Professor Daniel Fatovich, Dr Jenny McCloskey and Dr Jessamine Soderstrom and explore a range of rapidly evolving health issues in the era of COVID-19.
Professor of Emergency Medicine at the University of Western Australia, Head of the Centre for Clinical Research in Emergency Medicine (CCREM) at Perkins and an Adjunct Professor at Curtin University are some of the other impressive strings to his bow.
Professor Fatovich will discuss what drugs are available, how they look and how much they cost, plus share insights from research his team has conducted, including an MRI brain study of meth users.
Dr McCloskey will discuss Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs) in Perth, the syphilis outbreak and sexual disinhibition with drugs.
Dr Soderstrom will describe what patients look like when they present to the Emergency Department (ED) after becoming intoxicated with different drugs and how the staff treat them. She will also discuss the impact drug use has on the ED's staff and resources.
