Roscoe Lecture: Cancer, compassion & care

Over the last 15 years, LJMU has invited some of the country's leading commentators to deliver a Roscoe Lecture, joining the people of Liverpool in discussing issues that really matter.

These free, public lectures have used humour, cutting edge research and political insight to explore what it means to be a good citizen in today's society.

The topic of the next Lecture, to be delivered by Professor the Baroness Finlay of Llandaff is 'Cancer, compassion & care'.

Date: Thursday 20 October
Time: 5.00pm
Venue: St George’s Hall
