Unfortunately, the Library meeting space where our Manawatu Branch holds its monthly lectures is unavailable due to the COVID-19 alert level two restrictions, so we are postponing Dr Cynric Temple-Camp’s talk originally scheduled for Tuesday, 18 August until a later date.

Reflections from a Potpourri of Death
Dr Cynric Temple-Camp
After our Covid-19 pause, we are starting our lecture programme with a particularly fascinating
lecture by local pathologist Dr Cynric Temple-Camp, whose most recent book, The Quick and the Dead: True stories of life and death from a New Zealand pathologist, is now in bookshops.
While some doctors prefer personal contact with their patients and administering care to the living Cynric Temple-Camp admits to preferring the ‘hard science’ of pathology – the observation, testing, gathering of evidence, making deductions – and searching for the scientific answers to questions posed by disease and death.
Come along to our meeting on 18 August to hear more about the fascinating world of the pathologist and how his investigations help the living as well as uncovering causes of death.
