The November meeting of the SAMHS has been cancelled due to the virus.

December 11th, 2020

The Society's Christmas meeting is scheduled to be held on Friday, 11th of December at Living Choice, 123 Fisher Street, Fullarton at 12:00 pm.

The meeting will have a limit of 42 people, please contact the Secretary (Joy) to book a place.
Our guest speaker is Dr Susan Neuhaus, who will probably speak on some aspect of military surgery. As happened last year, we can buy lunch at Daniel's Restaurant after the presentation. Obviously, this meeting is in doubt too. We will let you know as soon possible whether the Christmas meeting will go ahead.

Dr Susan Neuhaus - "TBD"
