Event description

Description

Stephen Spencer is a doctor based in Bristol and he has a passion for finding diseases in remote populations. He is founder and director of Madagascar Medical Expeditions (MADEX), which is an award-winning medical aid and research project in the remote rainforest regions of Madagascar. Stephen was elected Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society as a medical student, founded the Manchester University Expedition Society and has been medical officer on expeditions throughout the Amazon, Bornean and Malagasy rainforests.

In 2014, whilst preparing for his finals, Stephen set-up two expeditions: assessing and treating sea cucumber fishermen in Mexico and MADEX. In 2016 he won the Society's Rivers Foundation Explorer Award for Health & Humanities and the University of Manchester Social Responsibility Awards and more recently he won the Turner-Warwick lecturer award by the Royal College of Physicians for his work in Madagascar.

MADEX is an organisation that works in the remote rainforest of Madagascar to tackle neglected tropical diseases such as schistosomiasis (more commonly known as bilharzia). Stephen will be talking about his experiences running medical expeditions and in tackling the most neglected diseases in the most neglected populations.
