DESCRIPTION:Doors open at 7.15\, and kickoff is at 7.30. To view event on Facebook click here \n\nOrgan donation saves lives. That’s something that nobody could argue with. But what’s the best way to go about recruiting donors? Opt-in? Opt-out? Could we do something different? This talk will look at the current situation in the UK\, and what might happen in the future. \nAbout the speaker:\nAs a microbiologist working in the NHS\, Tracey Jolliffe has presented many talks and posters at a national level\, but have never quite topped the achievement when\, as a precocious three year old\, her egg-box dragon won first prize at the local nursery. Outside of work\, her life (and home) is filled with bats. She describes herself as an official\, card carrying\, slightly fanatical\, bat lady. Her spare room houses a bat hospital\, to which she admits sick and injured bats from across Scotland. She often take poorly bats everywhere with me in order to feed and medicate them\, and so as not to alarm her colleagues and friends\, will have them hidden about her person. \n\nThis is event is free to attend\, although we will be asking for donations at the end of the talk. Participants are under no obligation whatsoever to donate\, however please rest assured that the money we collect doesn’t end up in anyone’s pocket – it is used to fund our overhead costs\, and travel/accommodation for our speakers who come from further afield. \n\nAccessibility: As per the policy of the Admiral Bar\, access to the venue “can only be provided to patrons who are sufficiently mobile and capable of independently evacuating premises\, or with the minimum of assistance”. Unfortunately\, this leaves the basement inaccessible to most wheelchair users. \n URL:http://glasgowskeptics.com/event/organ-donation-education-innovation LOCATION:72a Waterloo Street\, Glasgow\, G2 7DA\, United Kingdom ATTACH;FMTTYPE=image/png:http://glasgowskeptics.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/z_organ2_eb.png END:VEVENT END:VCALENDAR
