Chemicals and Health - on the Production of Pharmaceuticals

Activity by Fernando Castanheira   |   added on Jan 06, 2011   |   Portugal Official_iyc_logo

Sponsor(s): Camara Municipal de Vila Franca de Xira (e um laboratório a designar)

This activity is designed to make known how drugs are made. A group of University Senior students who attend classes on biology and health care will visit pharmaceutical laboratory.

I am responsible for the discipline of Primary Health Care, at the Senior University of Vila Franca de Xira, Portugal.
By linking the chemical to health care, especially in regard to this type of drugs that people consume, I requested the assistance of a pharmaceutical laboratory, which await response, so that these users know part of the process of drug production.
The advanced date for the visit to the lab, which is situated in the Municipality of Vila Franca de Xira, is the 17th February between 10:00 and 15:00.
I think it's important people know what the chemicals can do for them, especially in improving their quality of life.
