Child Cancer in Africa: an evening with Professors Elizabeth Molyneux and Simon Bailey on their work at Queen Elizabeth Central Hospital, Malawi
4th October 2018, Lumley Castle, Durham, DH3 4NX
We are very excited at the opportunity to hear from these two innovators in global care for children with cancer. Elizabeth led the paediatric team at QECH for over 20 years, developing paediatric A&E, general and oncology departments. Simon is a Professor of Neuro-oncology at GNCH, but has also spent extensive time at QECH, and continues to provide remote clinical advice and pathology services for the QECH team. Getting them together to talk and answer questions is a rare event, so we would encourage everyone to come along!
Buffet dinner available from 17:30, talks from 18:30. Free for PiNGHS members & students, £15 for others (or they can join PiNGHS on the door). Please RSVP by 30th September to
