New Member Reception, Tuesday 18 September, 2012

Russell Museum of Medical History and Innovation
at Massachusetts General Hospital

You are cordially invited to the Society’s annual Fall Reception starting at 6:00 pm for An Evening of Exploration and Fellowship. Attendance at the event (tickets $25) includes first year annual membership dues for new members.

We are fortunate to have two world-renowned Harvard physicians long associated with Massachusetts General Hospital, Dr. Tessa Hedley-Whyte and Dr. John Hedley-Whyte, who will deliver remarks.

Dr. E. Tessa Hedley-Whyte (King's, Durham) is Professor of Pathology specializing in neuropathology and a Principal Investigator in the Massachusetts Alzheimer Disease Research Centre. She is the author of over 150 research papers with topics ranging from pediatric neuropathology, particularly pituitary tumors, to Alzheimer’s disease to which she has applied novel molecular genetic and cell biology approaches for understanding what causes nerve cell loss in later life. At Harvard Medical School she is heavy involved in medical education, assisting in the admission and evaluation of students, and shaping the medical curriculum.

Dr. John H. Hedley-Whyte (Clare, Cantab.) is David S. Sheridan Professor of Anaesthesia and Respiratory Therapy at Brigham & Women’s Hospital. He was Chief of Anaesthesiology at Beth Israel Deaconess, which hosts an annual John Hedley-Whyte Lecture and there are John Hedley-Whyte Fellowships. He works on international committees on safety and standards in medicine and is credited with many innovations that make medical practice safer. At Harvard’s School of Public Heath he is a professor in the Department of Health Policy and Management. He has held an appointment at MGH for over 51 years, and published nearly 100 papers.

Reservations are required and must be received by Thursday, September 13th. You can book online, or contact Dr. Richard Mansfield at .
