Upcoming Meetings:

November 24th, 2022

The next meeting of the SAMHS will be held on Thursday, 24th of November at the Royal Society Rooms, Kintore Ave, Adelaide at 6:00 pm.

A number of members will know our speaker this month - Prof. John Crompton. He will speak about the trouble his father, Dr David Crompton AO, had to ensure what today seems obvious, that eye drops are sterile!

Our treasurer will happily accept any outstanding annual subscriptions on the night.

Also, our Christmas lunch meeting (12 noon, 9 December) is alarmingly close and a list will be available at the November meeting to add names.
Alternatively, you can email the Secretary to have your name added to the list.

We are still accepting surveys about SAMHS from members and have seen some useful comments, but are waiting a bit longer (ever hopeful) before collating the results.

Please note the new starting time of 6pm.

Prof. John Crompton AM - “Dr David Crompton AO & His Battle to Ensure All Eye Drops Are Sterile”

Members and guests are welcome.
