Travel Medicine - the Big Picture

Excellence in Healthcare 2017 is a large conference from the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Glasgow.  This particular event is held every 3 years and this is the 4th such occasion.  The travel medicine strand is to be held on Thursday 8th June at 200 St Vincent Street, Glasgow which is a short walk up the hill from the Central Station.  This time we have a number of high profile speakers covering topics such as Zika virus, malaria prospects for the future, humanitarian aid work post Ebola, hepatitis C, the threat of anti-microbial resistance in the tropics and its impact on travel medicine, and the latest on anti-venom research.  Added to this we also have plenary sessions which are related to travel medicine  including entomologist Dr James Logan speaking at the end of the day asking are we ‘Bug Body Ready’?  The event costs £90 to attend for a full day of high quality education, refreshments, exhibition, poster section plus excellent networking.   To look at the website and also to book a place look here or click on the image below.
