Dark Remedy: The Story of Thalidomide
The Center for Excellence in the Neurosciences will be sponsoring the first
in a series of social hour book clubs to discuss topics of broad UNE
Community Interest related to the Neurosciences (broadly defined). Attached
to this announcement is a flyer that provides additional information on the
first book we have chosen to review. It is called Dark Remedy and centers
around the thalidomide tragedy of the early 1960s.
If you are interested in participating we will be holding an informational
meeting Tuesday, October 27th at 5 pm in room 214 of the Pickus Center for
Biomedical Research. At the meeting we will explain the format of the book
club, set up future times and dates to meet to discuss the book, and make
arrangements to provide each participant with a copy of Dark Remedy.
This is a great opportunity for students, faculty and staff to interact
socially to discuss the multiple scientific, medical, social and ethical
facets surrounding the thalidomide tragedy.
Refreshments will be provided.
We ask that you please RSVP to Caitlin Tetreau <> so that we
can get an estimate of participation.
