Context

Creator(s): The Eustaceans

  • Administrative History ↴

    In 1972 a group of Irish 'company doctors' with a dedicated interest in occupational medicine set up The Eustaceans. The society was named for Dr Jack Eustace, a pioneer of occupational medicine in Ireland, and one of the founding members. The Eustaceans held a weekend meeting every Autumn in a different location in Ireland. The eleven members took it in turns to arrange the meeting, visit and international speakers. In 2004 The Eustaceans decided to wind themselves up, as their function had been largely superseded by the Faculty of Occupational Medicine.
