Upcoming Meetings:

March 23rd, 2023

The next meeting of the SAMHS will be held on Thursday, 23rd of March at the Royal Society Rooms, Kintore Ave, Adelaide at 6:00 pm.

The speaker for our March meeting knows parts of the Western desert of SA/WA like the back of his hand: Dr David Scrimgeour has been delivering health services to remote populations in central Australia for more than 50 years. Obviously, the early days of his experience are an important part of documented healthcare history against which he can contrast "modern-day" health services. Now retired, he has written a book "Remote as ever", and keeps busy by still going to the bush. We have invited David to bring copies of his book to the meeting for purchase.

Dr David Scrimgeour AM - “Historical Aspects of Health Service Delivery in Remote South Australia”

Members and guests are welcome.
