Dinner with Professor Geoff Gill – The Birth & Growth of Tropical Medicine in Liverpool

February 28 @ 6:30 pm - 10:30 pm

We are delighted to be joined by Professor Geoff Gill of the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine who will be joining us on Wednesday 28th February for dinner, where he will be giving a talk on ‘The Birth & Growth of Tropical Medicine in Liverpool’.

Professor Gill is an Honorary Research Fellow at the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine, where he previously held the post of Professor of International Medicine. He has had a major interest in non-communicable diseases (NCDs) in tropical environments, with associated research projects in South Africa and Ethiopia. At the LSTM he has for many years been involved with research into and clinical care of former Far East prisoners of war (POWs). In recent years he has led medical history enquiries into Far East imprisonment, resulting in two recent books – Captive Memories and Burma Railway.

Professor Gill will share with us some of the results of his pioneering work with the Far East POWs, as well as reflecting on the history of the LSTM from its foundation in 1898 by Sir Alfred Lewis as the first institution of its kind in the world to the present day, as it continues to lead the world in research and education.

Professor Gill’s talk will be followed by a three course meal in the Dining Room, after which you can relax in the Newsroom until the club closes at 11.00 pm.
