VIFM 30th Anniversary Celebration
On Thursday 4 October, the VIFM celebrated its 30th birthday.
Schofield Oration & Workshop
Professor Adnan Hyder visited the VIFM from September 18-20, primarily as the Schofield Orator for 2018. He is the Senior Associate Dean for Research and Professor of Global Health, at the Milken Institute of Public Health, George Washington University, USA. His Oration titled ‘Injury Prevention and Public Health Research in the 21st Century’ focussed largely on the developing world, firstly de-bunking myths around current approaches, then posing challenges for future work to assist development in low and middle income countries (LMIC).
On the 10-12 May, the VIFM co-hosted the 7th annual meeting of the International Society for Forensic Radiology and Imaging. This conference has been 18 months in the making and congratulations to Dr Chris O’Donnell and his team for organising a world class event.
Law Week Mock Inquest
On 14 May 2018, staff from the VIFM and CCOV participated in a mock inquest “performance” for The Law Foundation. This was a public event for Law Week and we had a packed house in courtrooms 1 & 2. The evening was hosted by the very entertaining Brian Nankervis, host of Rockwiz, who added a touch of humour to the night but also helped educate the audience about the work of the court.
