Ways to reduce harmful exposure to screen time will be among the topics discussed at tonight's meeting, by one of world's leading neuroscientists, Baroness Susan Greenfield from the UK. 

She will also speak of the dangers associated with prolonged screen time, how it affects our brain, and how you can protect yourself and your family from harm.

The meeting is open to the public, and starts at 5:30pm in the Atrium at St John of God Hospital.
