A leading figure in the North Wales medical profession visited Rydal Penrhos for a special event recently.
Dr Louisa Banks was the special guest speaker at the school’s Scientific Society lecture on Tuesday, February 20, where the Consultant Trauma and Orthopaedic Surgeon spoke in front of a packed Carnegie Room spoke on the Evolution of the Hand.
The former student at the European Board of Hand Surgery currently works at Glan Clwyd Hospital and has also worked for the Wrightington, Wigan and Leigh NHS Foundation Trust.
This is the latest in a series of lectures put on by the Scientific Society throughout the academic year, which is organised by Sixth Form pupils and led by Mili Jayadeep.
Head of Sixth Form Pete Lavery, said: “On behalf of everyone at Rydal Penrhos I would like to thank Dr Banks for taking the time to visit us, and to our Scientific Society for organising such an informative and successful event.
“This was a hugely beneficial lecture for anyone looking to pursue a career in medicine, and learning from an industry leader gives each pupil a broader perspective of what to expect if they choose to follow that particular path in later life.
“No doubt the lecture would have given those in attendance plenty to think about going forward, which ensures this was an extremely worthwhile event to put on.”
