How are life-or-death choices made in the heat of the moment? What are the consequences of your action, or inaction? Is it better at times to do nothing? How do you live with yourself if you want to help, but can’t?
These are the questions posed by Manchester medic and humanitarian Professor Tony Redmond in his memoir, Frontline: How to Save Lives in War, Disasters and Disease.
Join Tony and the charity he founded, UK-Med, for a special evening reflecting on stories from his memoirs at the John Rylands Research Institute and Library in Manchester on Tuesday 7th December 2021. The event will be hosted in the beautiful library and stunning reading room, a magical location and iconic home of the Manchester Humanitarian Archive.The evening will involve a selection of personal stories from Tony’s memoir Frontline: Saving lives in War, Disaster and Disease as well as moving other stories from UK-Med’s humanitarian responses.
The event starts from 6pm and will be finished around 7.30pm. Tickets are £15, which includes a drink on arrival.
