South African Snakebite Symposium

29th to 31st July 2022 at Kwanyoni Lodge, Nelspruit, Mpumalanga.

I'm proud to be presenting at the first ever South African Snakebite Symposium on the 29th to 31st July 2022 at Kwanyoni Lodge, Nelspruit, Mpumalanga. 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 organised by Lowveld Venom Suppliers.

I'm very excited to announce that I will be launching 2 new books at the symposium. These books focus upon spider bites and scorpion stings, and aim to usher in a new and progressive understanding and response to spider bites and scorpion stings. in Southern Africa.
