Brave Heart Tour

We have organised an exclusive tour of the Brave Hearts Exhibition for our members with with Judy Murphy, Auckland Medical Museum Trust Committee Member,  RN, Dip N, Dip Nsg Ed (Lond).

Brave Hearts, the new interactive exhibition is located on the waterfront in red containers close to Price Waterhouse Coopers building. It is normally open for the public to walk through by themselves. It brings the pioneering work of New Zealand’s heart clinicians and the bravery of their patients to life. Through interactive displays the exhibition explains how the heart works, how we investigate heart disease and the largely untold story of New Zealand’s leading role in the evolution of heart surgery. bravehearts.co.nz

This is a special tour with Judy, a charge nurse at Green Lane Hospital in the 1970’s, before completing advanced studies in nurse education in London. She has a wide range of experience in health research at the University of Auckland. Judy is a volunteer guide at Auckland Museum and co-author of two books on medical history (what books?).
