The VHS holds 3 meetings and a number of other events each year.
The next meeting for the year is:
Wednesday 8th May 2013
Prahran RSL – 301 High Street – Prahran
7.15pm – 10.30pm
Dr Ken Winkel
Dr Winkel’s talk is entitled “A Venomous History: Snakebite in Australia – Past, Present and Future”.
This will give an overview of the history of snakebite and its management in Australia leading up to the present and future possibilities. As it covers several periods and a lot of issues it will be broken up by discussion/questions and of course the usual pizza break!
Ken’s talk links to an Exhibition that is currently open to the public at the Medical History Museum at the University in Carlton http://museum.medicine.unimelb.edu.au/home/exhibitions/venom_fear,_fascination_and_discovery
