Here at Newington Library we’re getting ready for the latest in a series of talks we have been hosting in association with Surgeon’s Hall Museum.
This coming Tuesday Malcolm MacCallum will give a talk entitled “Human Race : Inside the history of sports medicine”. The talk is based around last year’s City Art Centre exhibition which formed part of the Cultural Olympiad.
Malcolm will explore the history, development and theory of sports medicine, covering topics such as doping, surgical advances and the sometimes complex relationship between sport and health.
Anyone who has been lucky enough to hear Malcolm MacCallum before will know what an informative, engaging and entertaining speaker he is. This is not to be missed!
This free talk will take place between 7.00 and 8.00 on the 22nd of January, and everyone is welcome. We will also have a selection of some of the items from the exhibition itself on display.
