In 2012, FSTC members contributed to several activities by publishing articles and giving lectures all around the world. Professor Rabie E Abdel-Halim, member of Muslim Heritage Awareness Group (MHAG) and of FSTC Research Team, attended several conferences in which he represented the Foundation in UK and abroad. On 12 May 2012, he gave a lecture at Wellcome Institute in London on "Medicine and Health in Medieval Arabic Poetry." One month later, on 13 June 2012, he presented a lecture at the conference on intellectual life in early Muslim world at the Manchester Metropolitan University in Manchester. A third participation of Professor Abdel-Halim was the lecture he presented in October 2012 at Mus Alp Arslan University in Turkey on the Use of Arabic Poetry in the Teaching of Medical Humanities at Medical Colleges. We present hereafter abstracts of these activities with selected slides.
