Doors open at 7. Kick off at 7.30
A lighthearted, but informative, romp through the world of sexually transmitted infections - with a Christmas theme! Come along and you might just pull a cracker, or end up with a not so pleasant present.
Tracey Jolliffe is an Edinburgh Skeptics regular. When we asked her to describe herself, she said:
As a microbiologist working in the NHS, I have presented many talks and posters at a national level, but have never quite topped the achievement when, as a precocious three year old, my egg-box dragon won first prize at the local nursery.
Outside of work, my life (and home) is filled with bats. I am an official, card carrying, slightly fanatical, bat lady. My spare room houses a bat hospital, to which I admit sick and injured bats from across Scotland. I often take poorly bats everywhere with me in order to feed and medicate them, and so as not to alarm my colleagues and friends, will have them hidden about my person.
This is event is free to attend, although we will be asking for donations at the end of the talk. Participants are under no obligation whatsoever to donate, however please rest assured that the money we collect doesn't end up in anyone's pocket - it is used to fund our overhead costs, and travel/accommodation for our speakers who come from further afield.
Accessibility: As per the policy of the Admiral Bar, access to the venue “can only be provided to patrons who are sufficiently mobile and capable of independently evacuating premises, or with the minimum of assistance”. Unfortunately, this leaves the basement inaccessible to most wheelchair users.
