Lunch - the Speaker today is Dr Sarah Wookey from MSF
Mon 23rd October 2017 at 13.00 - 14.30
Sarah has just returned from CHAD where she has been working for Medecins sans Frontieres there.
"I studied medicine in Belfast, Northern Ireland, and then moved to North Oxfordshire to undergo training in general practice (family medicine). I then joined a partnership in a large local general practice providing NHS care for around 18,000 patients, where I remained for 27 years.
During that time I trained newly qualified doctors to become GPs and developed extra skills in children and women's health, and skin medicine.
After our four children grew up and sort of left home - most parents will recognise that this isn't a quick process and bits of their lives gradually oozed, like amoebas, from their old home to their respective new and more or less independent ones - I started working as a volunteer expedition medic in my spare time, travelling, among other places, to Kenya, Tanzania, China, Madagascar, Transylvania and, most recently, Chad."
