Next Village Society Talk
Human Pathology from the Past to the Future: a talk presented by Charles van Heyningen who is a Fellow of the Royal college of Pathologists and retired after 28 years as a consultant pathologist in the NHS. Pathology is the study of diseases and derives from Ancient Greek roots meaning “an account of suffering”. His talk explores the practice of human pathology from the nineteenth century to the present and speculates on the future. He describes the growing variety of pathology specialties and the people working in modern laboratory services, including some local history.
