Winter Meeting 2015

Those darker, colder nights are drawing in again. So, this can only mean one thing! Our annual event at the fantastic Gordon Museum of Pathology is just around the corner, and we’d love for you to join us!

This meeting, on Thursday 10th December, we have two great talks lined up for you:

First up at 7pm is a talk entitled “Medical Museums” from Bill Edwards, the Curator of The Gordon Museum.

Then, at 7:45pm, we have a talk on “Mesothelioma” from consultant thoracic and breast histopathologist, Dr Paul Cane of Guy’s and St Thomas’ Hospital.

As usual, this event is free, 2 CPD points have been applied for, and we will be serving complimentary sandwiches and drinks from 6:30pm. So, do arrive early for some refreshments and to have a good look at the really impressive collections on display. In-keeping with the theme of our final talk, we will have a special display of mesothelioma specimens for you to have a look at, too.

If you have any questions about the event, please click on any of the “Contact” buttons on this screen to send an email.
