We have chosen Eastbridge Hospital as our venue. The 12th century setting was a place of sanctuary where people were cared for at the end of their pilgrimage. This is parallel to today’s elderly, cared for in residential care homes at the end of their own life’s journey.
The exhibition combines medical research, science, history, art, crafts and stories to appeal to a wide and diverse audience. We aim to raise awareness and understanding of scabies and reduce the stigma of this common infection. We also hope to inspire the younger generation by providing an exciting, informative and interactive place to learn.
