We've got an exciting line up of events this month!

Next week we have the rescheduled 'A fair field, and no favour': Edinburgh Medical Women c. 1869-1920 talk with Elaine Thomson. This talk was originally scheduled for International Women's Day in March, however was cancelled due to the snow.

On the 17th we have our 'Blood and Bugs: Why Did Surgeons Learn to Wash their Hands?' workshop which will keep the kids entertained during the Edinburgh public holiday.

On the 29th is oir Comic Book Creation Workshop with graphic novelist Edward Ross. We only have one space left on this workshop if you would like to come along and learn the art of graphic novel story telling.

And last but not least our 'Blood and Guts: The Twists and Turns of Edinburgh's Medical History' walking tours will continue to run at 2.30pm on Saturdays and Sundays throughout the month.
