Brief overview:

Paramedics Australasia is visiting the Wimmera and we're inviting paramedics, nurses and doctors from BOTH sides of the state border to join us in Horsham for an interactive session on snake behaviour and toxicology ahead of the summer.

This event will include snake handling by snake experts Geoff Coombe and Rudy Della-Flora, and an envenomation session with Chris Cotton (SA).

Light food and refreshments will be served on the night thanks to the generous sponsorship of Seqirus Australia - a CSL company.
