Chris welcomed everyone back after the summer break. There were 68 ladies at the meeting comprising of 61 members, 1 new member and 6 guests.
Our speaker for the evening was Danielle Mills from the Medical Detection Dogs charity, she explained how they train dogs to detect odour of human disease. The charity’s work is at the forefront of the research in early detection of cancers with bio detection dogs and alert dogs for people with life threatening diseases such as type 1 diabetes. Who knew that a dogs nose has about 300 million sensors, humans have 5 million! and 30% of a dogs brain is devoted to smell. Ann Platts gave the vote of thanks for a fascinating talk.
