We are delighted to announce that the inaugural British Mountain Medicine Society's Science Day will take place on Wednesday 13th November 2019. The event will take place at the Bamford Institute, right in the heart of the UK's Peak District. The day will feature talks, discussions and poster presentations from researchers, young and old, on a wide range of mountain medicine topics.
To round off a fascinating day there will be an evening talk by Dr Mike Gill. Our guest of honour was a 22-year-old medical student in 1959 when he followed up on a newspaper statement that Sir Edmund Hillary was looking to recruit climbers for his next Himalayan expedition. As a climber, photographer, doctor and writer, Mike was closely involved in many of Hillary's subsequent expeditions. This wealth of experience led to the writing of, "Edmund Hillary: A Biography" and will be the subject of what promises to be a fascinating talk!
Details of how to present your poster or give a talk will be announced shortly.
The cost for the day will be £90 (£70 for BMMS members).
The fee includes lunch, dinner and a signed copy of Mike Gill's, "Edmund Hillary: A Biography".
We are currently working with sponsors to arrange discounted places for those on a low wage.
