South African Snakebite Symposium

29th to 31st July 2022 at The Capital, Mbombela, Mpumalanga.

I'm proud to be presenting at the first ever South African Snakebite Symposium on the 29th to 31st July 2022 at The Capital Mbombela. It is an opportunity to create understanding and increase awareness of effective management of snakebite in South Africa. 

My contribution is in the area of spider bites and scorpions stings. I will be presenting the following 2 sessions that offer a framework that reduces the risk of being bitten of sting by spiders or scorpions, and ensures the best possible outcome should a bite or sting occur in humans or pets. 

The South African Snakebite Symposium is made possible through the generosity of the Gift of the Givers, and organised by Lowveld Venom Suppliers.
