|Email item||Print item||
Flimkien ghal Ambjent Ahjar will launch its calendar of events this month with the first talk of the year – The History of Medicine of the Maltese Islands – delivered by Professor Carmel Lino Cutajar at the Mediterranean Conference Centre, formerly the hospital of the Order of St John.
This talk, to be held on the 27th of January at 6.30pm, will discuss Malta's fascinating medical history. Prof Carmel Lino Cutajar will trace the evolution of medicine throughout the whole period of human activity on the islands.
Nebulous evidence of ancient times builds up to the grandeur of medical developments with the advent of the Hospitaller Order of St John whose hospital, the Sacra Infermeria, built in 1574, was among the most advanced in Europe.
Professor Cutajar will relate the outstanding progress in contemporary medicine in Malta to medical advances on the European mainland. Important local medical developments, events and personages will receive special mention in this lavishly illustrated presentation:
Members of FAA will also be able to purchase for a special price, a signed copy of Prof. Cutajar's acclaimed autobiography 'In at the Deep End: Reminiscences of a Maltese Surgeon' described by Laurence Grech, former Times Editor as "A gripping enjoyable narrative, informative, educational, entertaining and moving, with touches of humour, curious anecdotes."
Seats are limited so please book your place to avoid disappointment. Guests are kindly asked to be seated by 6.15pm.
