We frequently hear about general literacy levels in the community, and even
about science and maths literacy, but rarely about the wider public
understanding of evidence-based health matters. The exception to this has
been the vaccination vs antivaccination arguments playing itself out in
online threads all over the internet; in newspapers and current affairs
programmes; and even in celebrity gossip columns with the likes of Jim
Carey and Bill Maher making their ideas heard.

At Giants of Medicine we'll hear on these matters and more from two of the
world's most important contributors to medical science, Nobel Laureate
Professor Peter Doherty and Eureka Prize Winner Professor Ian Frazer.

Discussion to be moderated by Reema Rattan Health Editor for The
Conversation followed by 20 mins for Q&A.
