We are happy to announce that our new website was launched today and can be found here. The website features news about the Society and information about John Snow and the cholera epidemic of 1854. It provides a mechanism to become a member on-line, and to update your contact details if you are already a member. It will also be possible to order John Snow items (mugs etc) through the site.
We are also delighted to announce the publication today of the latest Broadsheet. You can view it here. The new website not only has a link to the 2015 broadsheet but also provides an archive of many of the earlier Broadsheets.
Finally, this year’s John Snow Pumphandle Lecture will be held on the 8 October in the John Snow Lecture Theatre at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. The 2015 lecturer is Dr Atul Gawande whose subject will be ‘On Removing the Pumphandle: Innovation in Implementation’. As we expect a high turnout for this lecture, we have instituted a booking system. This is free and on-line. We recommend booking early by clicking here. Members will have priority booking until 1 September, after which tickets will be on general release. Further details can be found in the 2015 Broadsheet.
