In this evening event, we will cover medicine and wartime politics. We'll discuss the illnesses of Sir Winston Churchill, understanding his character and his determination to overcome an abundance of health issues. We'll discuss the series of strokes he suffered from, and how these affected his political performance.
Much of the information we will provide is of recent discovery and interpretation. It is based on a recent series published in the JRSM, giving the History of Medicine Society a special opportunity to hear stories from two world experts, Professor Allister Vale, City Hospital and University of Birmingham, and Dr. John Scadding, National Hospital for Neurology, on Churchill's medical history.
