Description

On the 12th of May each year – the anniversary of Florence Nightingale’s birth - we celebrate International Nurses Day, acknowledging the role nurses play in the care of our communities.

In recognition of these amazing people, Adelaide Cemeteries Authority is proud to present:

‘The Science and Physicians Charity Tour’

Unlock the stories behind the fascinating and often bizarre characters that helped shape the medical, science and technological world. Some of South Australia's most iconic pharmaceutical entrepreneurs, philanthropists and medical specialists are laid to rest at the state heritage listed West Terrace Cemetery. Come along to our newest tour out and be enthralled by the stories of the iconic South Australians resting at our doorstep.

All money raised through this tour will be donated to The Hospital Research Foundation to fund research at the Basil Hetzel Institute, The Queen Elizabeth Hospital (TQEH). The Hospital Research Foundation also assists PhD Students by issuing scholarships.

Research areas at TQEH covered include: Ageing, Cancer, Cardiovascular Disease, Clinical Sciences, Drug and Vaccine Development and Inflammatory Disease.
