Prof Bodeker’s lecture was attended by close to ninety members of the George business community, NMMU George Campus Staff and students.  He was also one of the guest speakers, with a similar topic, together with Prof Johnson, who delivered a keynote address at a NMMU Health Sciences Faculty Student Research conference at NMMU in Port Elizabeth the following day.

Prof Johnson’s keynote address was titled – “Natural Medicines: From bench to bedside”   The two complementing presentations put the spotlight on the broad spectrum of natural medicines – from the research phase, to the administering thereof to patients, to the broader application thereof in the interest of public health.
