Upcoming Meetings:

March 28th, 2024

The 2024 Donald Simpson Oration

The next meeting of the SAMHS will be held on Thursday, 28th of March at the Dulwich Community Centre, 14 Union St, Dulwich at 6:00 pm.

This year our March meeting hosts the '2024 Donald Simpson Oration' and our speaker is, most appropriately, Emeritus Professor Peter Reilly AO. Before speaking on the topic of the anatomist Frederick Wood Jones, Peter will remind us of the late Professor Donald Simpson's outstanding intellect and achievements.

An important reminder that SAMHS meetings will be held in a different venue this year - Dulwich Community Centre.

Emeritus Professor Peter Reilly AO - "Anatomist: Frederick Wood Jones (1879 - 1954)"

Field Trip, 2024: TBA

On our field trip this year, we will visit the Vernon Roberts Museum in the Helen Mayo building of the old Medical School on Frome Road and plan to adjourn to the Art gallery café afterwards. We hope to obtain a booking in the last week of April and will announce the date and time as soon as possible. The Vernon Roberts museum holds the most extensive collection of examples of human diseases and detailed anatomical prosections in South Australia.

Members and guests are welcome.
