Last night I gave a talk on Healthy Journalism for the Patient Information Forum, hosted at the Wellcome Trust. I had a bit of time to kill beforehand, so I went next door to the Wellcome collection, where there is a fascinating and quirky exhibition called Medicine Now. It’s deliberately not comprehensive but instead focuses on a few ideas in medicine since 1936 – the year of Henry Wellcome’s death. I particularly enjoyed the malaria section, which included a rather moving exhibit of photos attached to bed nets, a case on antimalarials – including fake artesunate – and a map of the world, made out of … mosquitoes.
