Symposium – Vitamin C for Cancer and Infection: from Bench to Bedside

There has been an upsurge in new discoveries around the role of vitamin C in cancer and infection. Public awareness and the interest of many health professionals in vitamin C has increased following a number of recent reports of clinical benefit from vitamin C administration, and new mechanistic insights are providing rationales for targeted clinical trials.

This Symposium brings together the widest group of international experts working in the field of vitamin C, cancer and infectious diseases ever gathered in New Zealand. These comprise respected international research scientists and clinicians conducting clinical trials who will share their latest discoveries in the fields of cancer and infection.

Public Event – Vitamin C for Cancer and Infection – what do we know?

A separate session specifically targeted for the general public will be held on Saturday afternoon. This will feature speakers from the Friday symposium, so if you are unable to make it to the main symposium, you may want to attend this public event.

The Vitamin C for cancer and infection - from bench to bedside activities have been endorsed by The Royal New Zealand College of General Practitioners (RNZCGP) and have been approved for up to 10.5 CME credits for the General Practice Educational Programme (GPEP) and Continuing Professional Development (CPD) purposes.
