Upcoming Meetings:


September 28th, 2017

The next meeting of the SAMHS is the Annual General meeting, and will be held on Thursday, 28th of September at the Royal Society Rooms, Kintore Ave, Adelaide at 5:30 pm.

Our speaker this month is well known in South Australia and around the world, so we are most fortunate to have Emeritus Professor Alastair MacLennan as a speaker on the topic of cerebral palsy: "From Changling babies and Witches, through "Birth Asphyxia" and lawyers, to the lottery of genetic variation".

Members and guests are welcome.
