Fork Suppers

Wednesday, September 25th, 2013

Margery Blackie used to hold regular Fork Suppers to introduce doctors to the ideas of homeopathy and to invite debate on the subject. One of the constant challenges to the homeopathic community is to inform enough doctors about the possibilities of homeopathy. At a Blackie Foundation Trust Fork Supper, a small group of invited guests, who may or may not be adherents to or supporters of homeopathy, gather together. A homeopathic doctor will then give a talk about homeopathy. Good quality light meals and drinks are provided, during or after which, questions and answers are informally taken in a relaxed atmosphere.

Are you a potential speaker?
If you would be interested in becoming a speaker at one of the Trust’s Fork Suppers, please get in touch with the Trust Administrator with your ideas.

Would you like to host a fork supper?
The foundation is keen to hold similar events around the country, so if you know of a group of doctors who would be interested or would like to organise something similar yourself, please contact the Trust.
