Andrew Herxheimer Memorial Meeting

Andrew Herxheimer Memorial Meeting
Friends’ Meeting House, St Giles, Oxford OX1 3LW
Tuesday 15 November 2016, 10am for a 10.30 start
We very much hope that you will be able to join us on Tuesday 15 November 2016 to remember our colleague Andrew Herxheimer (1925-2016). We will celebrate his extraordinary contributions, in particular to the fields of pharmacology, patients’ experiences, and The Cochrane Collaboration.

We will also take great pleasure in remembering his warmth, charm and humour, his editorial skills and enthusiasm for plain English, and of course the constant puns. Indeed, the Guardian obituary writer noted that Andrew used ‘words as precision tools’ and ‘punned in four languages’.

There will be talks and photographs, personal reflections from Andrew’s daughters Sophie and Charlotte, and from his wife, Christine.

Confirmed speakers include Iain Chalmers, Nicky Britten, Anita Hardon, Gabriele Lucius-Hoene, Trish Greenhalgh,  Jeffrey Aronson and Sue Ziebland.
To cover the costs, including venue hire, coffee, lunch, and tea we are inviting people to pay £45 a head. Any money that is left over will be donated to the DIPEx charity, of which Andrew was the co-founder (with Ann McPherson) and a trustee until his death.
