The University of Winchester invites you to the launch of our new Centre for Medical History.
The Centre for Medical History has been founded to promote and disseminate research on the social history of health and illness for humans and animals from the ancient to the modern world. The launch will be followed by a series of monthly, early evening historical lectures open to staff, students and members of the public during university term times.
The launch begins with a welcome addresses from Dr Louise Curth, Head of the Centre for Medical History at the University of Winchester; Professor Elizabeth Stuart, Deputy Vice-Chancellor at the University of Winchester; and Mr Chris Hassan from the Wellcome Trust. This is followed by the series' first lecture by Professor Charlotte Roberts from the University of Durham.
