Other Announcements

Malcolm Kinnear (Murray Royal Hospital, Perth) sent the following information:

I am now Treasurer of the Scottish Society of the History of Medicine, SSHM, and would like to draw the group's attention to the fact that the SSHM has funds to support research in Scottish medical history (the Guthrie Trust) which can generate awards of up to £2000-£3000 for credible proposals. We would welcome applications. Further details are on SSHM website.
