July 31 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
This months speaker is Geoff Lambert “My Dog’s Nose Knows”.
‘Medical Detection Dogs’ use the amazing power of the dog’s nose to detect human disease. They are at the forefront of the research into
the fight against cancer and helping people with life threatening diseases.
The Medical Alert Assistance Dogs support individuals with complex health conditions who have limited awareness of an impending life
threatening medical event. Assistance dogs are trained to detect minute changes in individual’s personal odour triggered by their
disease and alert them to impending medical events.
Geoff will talk about how the organisation train and use dogs to alert people to control their health conditions and how they are used in the early detection of cancer.
He hopes to bring along a dog to interact with the audience but not to detect illness!
