Australian Skeptics in the Pub - CROWN HOTEL

Beating the bite of mosquito-borne disease.

Mosquitoes are the most dangerous creatures on the planet.  They're also beautiful and fascinating. They make thousands of Australians sick every year. 

How will a changing climate and new technologies shape the way we beat the bite of future mosquito-borne disease risk? Be careful, you may learn to love, not loathe, the buzz of summer mozzies.

Our speaker, Dr Cameron Webb is a Medical Entomologist with the University of Sydney trying to think like a mosquito to better understand their role in public health risks as well as local wetland ecosystems.

On the first Thursday of each month, Australian Skeptics and friends get together in the Library Bar and Bistro on Level 1 of the Crown Hotel on the corner of Elizabeth and Goulburn Streets, Sydney.

Please come upstairs to The Library Bar and Bistro on Level 1.

The Bar opens at 5 pm and the Bistro opens at 5.30 pm.  People generally start arriving around 6 pm after work. The talk begins at 7 pm and lasts for about 30 minutes.  The night finishes when the last person leaves.

Enjoy a meal and a drink accompanied by lively discussion, free spoon bending lessons and the company of other sceptics, as we cover a variety of interesting topics.

All welcome!  Bring friends too.

----

To get there, the Crown Hotel is one block away from Museum station and a few more minutes walk from St James and Town Hall stations.  A number of buses stop nearby.

Parking: Goulburn Street Parking Station is located diagonally opposite the pub.

    Got a buzz out of the presentation. Plenty of bite. The topic had wings, but we weren't swamped with information.

    Any chance for a Friday or Saturday event? I have spoken to a number of fellow Skeptics and due to School children issues they are not interested.

    Easier to get a baby sitter if they don't have to work the next day.
