  • Over recent years our annual Faculty of Travel Medicine Conference has focussed on particular themes; covering the areas of travel medicine that are less often presented at other conferences. Our 2020 conference at the College on 23 October 2020 is no different with the theme being “Vulnerable Travellers”. Highlights include catering for travellers with cognitive decline, cardiac and rheumatoid conditions; travelling to extreme summits; women’s health and the taboo subjects that must be covered; how podiatrists can help travellers; and the annual Livingstone Lecture. We look forward to seeing you in October 2020.
