Join us at the University of Central Lancashire for an out-of-this-world experience exploring the fascinating field of Space Medicine.

Prof. Stuart Maitland-Knibb, Director of the National Centre for Remote and Rural Medicine, will be introducing Dr Peter Hodkinson, member of the European Space Agency Medical Board and Head of Aerospace Medicine at King's College London.

Get an insight into the role of space doctors, learn about the impact of space exploration on the human body and explore the impact on human physiology at the Final Frontier.

This insight will allow health professionals practising on earth to see what is possible. Extreme medics, remote and rural practitioners and non-medical staff alike can learn how to give advice and what can be done under instruction, even with a 9 minute comms delay.

Whether you're an aspiring astronaut or medic or just a curious earthling, this talk has something for everyone. Grab your spacesuit and join us for an unforgettable adventure.
