WI Meeting ~ Medical Detection Dogs

Event Details

Medical Detection DogsLearn about Medical Detection Dogs from Dr. Geoffrey Farrer-Brown who is a retired histopathologist. He has researched the subject and chaired an international conference on medical bio-detection. The power of a dog’s nose to detect human diseases is amazing! The Medical Detection Centre started in Great Horwood in 2008 and the dogs also support people who have to cope health conditions such as diabetes.

There will be no dogs on the evening but plenty of information so do come to listen! Entry for visitors is only 50p and all are welcome.

Geoffrey will also talk about the role of volunteers who help to ‘socialise’ young puppies and older dogs by taking them into their
homes while they are in training.

We do try to complement our subject with a suitable competition. This time it’s for a nosegay or pot-pourri. There are no prizes but we choose our favourite on the night.
