This year we are delighted that Gavin Francis, GP and author, will deliver our Annual Charity Lecture.

Gavin qualified in medicine from Edinburgh in 1999, then spent ten years travelling, visiting all seven continents. He is the author of four books: True North, Travels in Arctic Europe (2008), Empire Antarctica, Ice, Silence & Emperor Penguins (2012) which was Scottish Book of the Year 2013, and Adventures in Human Being (2015), which won a Saltire Prize and was a winner in the BMA Book Awards. Shapeshifters – On Medicine & Human Change, came out in 2018.

In this lecture, Ice Station Zebra — Lessons from an Antarctic Practice, Gavin will talk about the experience of practicing medicine in the Antarctic, the extreme conditions, the intense isolation and the developments, both personal and scientific, which resulted.

Join us for drinks and mince pies from 6.15 pm, with a chance to win a fantastic prize in our charity raffle. The lecture begins at 7.00 pm.

All profits from this event will go to Cyrenians (Edinburgh based charity for the homeless and vulnerable) and Médecins Sans Frontières (Doctors Without Borders).
