Pop-Up Walkie Talkie: Pharmaceutical Side-Effects

The Cornish Bank, 34 Church Street, Falmouth TR11 3EF

Where do our medications come from and where do they go?

We all know the feeling of having a headache at work and the relief a paracetamol can offer. Rarely do we think about what happens to the medication after we swallow it. 

Dr. Kelly Thornber works alongside the NHS, the Environmental Agency, the pharmaceutical industry, the water industry and many other external partners, to find solutions to reduce the rising environmental impacts of the medicines we use every day.

This event is part of FUTURES, a FREE festival of discovery for all ages where you can explore the past, create the present and imagine the future. Agile Rabbit is delivering this event on behalf of the University of Exeter, celebrating and highlighting its vibrant, fascinating, and impactful research.
