Online talk: Common Cold Hospital in the archives

Date: 18/05/2022
Time: 7:00 pm
Location: Online

To commemorate Clinical Trials Day 2022 we present an inside look at our historical collections with the focus on one of the largest clinical research programmes here in Salisbury. 10,000+ volunteers took part in the study of the common cold at the Harvard Hospital (Common Cold Unit) from 1940s – 1990s

During a 40 minute presentation, by Lesley Self of ArtCare, you will get to know about items in our archives including photographs, documents, books, objects and stories relating to the Hospital. The artefacts and archives provide a fascinating insight, not only into public health but the social history of our city.

Please register to attend and a link will be circulated in advance with instructions of how to join the event.
