Polio - Like Father Like Son

Mon, Nov 15th 2021 at 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Hybrid Meeting

This week, our speaker is James Carmichael, Author and Rotarian.  He will talk to us about his personal experience of polio - so no facts and figures - just a chat about some of the issues that he and his father had to deal with. His father contracted polio as a boy - and so did James  His father's left leg was paralysed as was James. But his father didn’t have the benefit of the NHS - nor of the therapies and treatments that were put in place during the 1940’s.
