The Royal Melbourne Hospital
Public Lecture Series
Friends of The Royal Melbourne Hospital have been continuously involved with the hospital since its doors first opened on 15 March 1848. Since those first days the Hospital has had an extensive network of individuals who have and retain a strong interest in its activities. Many of these people have provided lengthy periods of both voluntary or staff service and remain interested and committed to the Hospital.
The Royal Melbourne Hospital Public Lecture Series has been established for the friends to learn about the latest medical advances and research at The Royal Melbourne Hospital. Our Lectures are open to the wider community and are an opportunity for education on prevention, treatment and cure of specific diseases and are delivered by leading medical professionals and researchers.
Annual membership $30
Our next Public Lecture will be held on 6 June 2013. Join Professor Peter Colman, Director of Diabetes and Endocrinology at The Royal Melbourne Hospital whilst he discusses the leading role the Hospital has taken in the research and treatment of diabetes.
Diabetes is the world’s fastest growing chronic disease. There are 1.8 million Australians living with diabetes with about 275 Australian adults developing the disease every day.
