Following on from our successful autumn event, this second day of talks continues our journey through medical history from the drug innovations of the Second World War to the contemporary medical developments which have secured the greatest survival rates in the history of warfare.
These talks will explore the relationship between medical and military advancements, spanning the development and mass production of penicillin to the introduction of personal tourniquets and the ‘golden hour’.
