Upcoming Meetings:

Field Trip, 2pm, May 16th 2024

Our Field trip for 2024 is a visit to the Vernon Roberts Medical Museum and it will commence at 2pm on Thursday 16th May. Depending on numbers, we may need to split into two groups as the Museum is one large room. For members who would like a walk afterwards, some of the committee plan to go across to the SA Art gallery café for coffee.

The Vernon-Roberts Museum is in the Helen Mayo Building, Frome Road, University of Adelaide. A commercial (Wilson) carpark is situated at the rear, otherwise timed parking is available further down Frome Road and along Victoria Drive. Frome Road Bus stop 1A is the closest to the Helen Mayo building.

If you intend to join this visit to the Vernon-Roberts museum, please contact the Secretary at your earliest convenience (no need for apologies). Thank you.

Guests are most welcome; please register them when you reply.

May 23rd, 2024

The next meeting of the SAMHS will be held on Thursday, 23rd of May at the Dulwich Community Centre, 14 Union St, Dulwich at 6:00 pm.

Our next meeting will be held on Thursday 23rd May 2024 and I hope everyone is looking forward to hearing Emeritus Professor Doug McEvoy speak to us on the topic of Sleep medicine. As the immediate past Director of the Adelaide Institute for Sleep Health at Flinders University in South Australia, Prof. McEvoy's research has been at the forefront of sleep research nationally and internationally for 25 years.

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

Emeritus Professor Doug McEvoy - "Sleep Medicine In South Australia"
