Event Details

Genome BC is pleased to let you know that Dame Sally Davies, Chief Medical Officer for England and Chief Medical Advisor to the UK Government, will deliver Genome BC’s 5th Annual Don Rix Distinguished Keynote Address on Tuesday, October 7th 2014 at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Vancouver.

Dame Sally is independent advisor to the Government on medical matters, with particular responsibilities regarding Public Health. She has recently written and released her book “The Drugs Don’t Work “, where she simply, yet eloquently explains that resistance to our current cupboard of antibiotics is the new hidden truth and a truth we need to talk about and work globally to solve.

The first woman to ever hold the position of CMO in a 155 years of the position’s existence and named Britain’s 6th most powerful woman by the BBC, she guides government decisions on diverse subjects such as superbugs, drug trials, obesity, addiction and mental health. Sally has been actively involved in NHS R&D from its establishment and founded the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) with a budget of £1 billion.
