Human Race Exhibition
Human Race: Inside the History of Sports Medicine exhibition comes to ASV
Hosted by: Aberdeen Sports Village
Venue: Aberdeen Sports Village
Human Race: inside the history of sports medicine exhibition will be on display in the ASV entrance hall for four weeks. The exhibition of Scottish collections explores the body as it prepares for, and competes in, sport.
It highlights for the first time some of the pioneering developments in medical imaging, surgery and sports training that have taken place over the last 200 years, and their subsequent impact on the development of Sports and Exercise Medicine as we know it today.
Museums, individuals and other institutions from across Scotland have contributed objects to the exhibition, many of which are being seen by the public for the first time.
