Leicester’s Medical Ethics Student Society (MESS) is pleased to invite you to the Regional IME Student Ethics Conference, to take place in our new Centre for Medicine on Saturday 11th June.
The theme this year is ‘Politics in Medicine’, a topic that we are sure will encourage vigorous debate, given the current climate.
We hope to offer a varied and involving day; including debates, student-led poster and oral presentations, a plenary lecture from Professor Jose Miola on ‘Lord Sacchi’s Medical Innovation Bill’ , and a choice of workshops which will allow delegates to debate the issues directly.
It will be a fantastic opportunity to learn about, discuss and question the current political and ethical issues facing healthcare today, and meet like-minded medical students!
The event costs £10 to attend.

The Refugee Health Conference, Saturday 23rd of April, Green Templeton College, Oxford
The flight of refugees from Syria and North Africa has been called the greatest humanitarian crisis of our time, and it shows no signs of slowing down; UNHCR has just appealed for another half million to be resettled over the next few months in Europe. Rather than just watching helplessly as it unfolds, we offer you an opportunity to educate and involve yourself with the challenges ahead as this vulnerable population arrives to our shores. What particular health care needs do they have? What barriers to health care access do they face? How are the children affected in the long term? What can I do now, practically, as a medical student?
Saturday 23rd of April, 9.30am-5.30pm
Green Templeton College
Lunch is included!
Book your (free) tickets on www.oxrefugeehealth.org, or find out more on https://www.facebook.com/events/1705619736380975/
