2022 Bowen Oliver Oration

Empathy for Impact: Stories of Resilience and Hope

SAHMRI’s Media Production Officer and award-winning podcaster Callum MacPherson delivered the 2022 Bowen Oliver Oration, sharing what inspired him to use his own time and resources to establish and grow his Young Blood – Men’s Mental Health podcast.

The annual Bowen Oliver Oration celebrates the life of a vibrant young man who was diagnosed with an inherited disorder at the age of six. A world-first treatment, developed by Adelaide researchers, enabled Bowen to overcome many of the debilitating effects of the disorder to pursue his life and interests with gusto. Sadly, at the age of 21, Bowen passed away from unexplained causes.

Bowen was a passionate communicator who believed in the power of words to improve lives and communities. The annual Oration is a celebration of that spirit.

LivingProof Exhibition

The Do’s and Don’ts of Healthy Ageing

They say ‘you are what you eat’. That’s certainly true to an extent, but there are many factors that determine how healthily we age. To celebrate the launch of Bene’s thought-provoking LivingProof photographic exhibition at SAHMRI, hear from three healthy ageing experts, Professor Leonie Heilbronn, Professor Elina Hyppönen and Associate Professor Gillian Caughey, about what their latest research says we should and shouldn’t be doing for the best chance of maintaining a happy and healthy lifestyle well into old age.

Guests & Speakers

Dining, Dignity and Health

We all know that eating well is key to ageing well. But what does it mean to eat well? Professor Geraint Rogers offers his evidence-based insights on the many and varied benefits of a healthy, balanced diet, while Maggie Beer and Rosa Matto share their passion for transforming health and wellbeing in ageing through food within the broader context of food as nutrition, culture and the dining experience. And in an engaging exploration of how we construct our social identities, our families and communities through food, Dr Karen Patterson takes a look at how food helps us to understand what it means to be human.
