IAFR Webinar – Forensic Anthropology in the Field

AUSTRALIAN SOCIETY OF MEDICAL IMAGING AND RADIATION THERAPY

IAFR Webinar – Forensic Anthropology in the Field

28 Jul 2021, 19:30 - 28 Jul 2021, 20:30



The ANZ Branch of the International Association of Forensic Radiographers (IAFR) are proud to present a webinar on Forensic Anthropology and Archaeology. Forensic anthropology and archaeology are fields which run closely alongside forensic imaging but are often misunderstood or overlooked when we think of the radiography world. While Forensic anthropologists and archaeologists can often be found working synchronously to search for, recover and identify human remains, there are very different objectives and skills involved. 

This webinar will help forensic radiographers understand more about forensic anthropology and forensic archaeology, explain some of the techniques used and discuss how imaging is playing a role in these fields. IAFR introduces their wonderful speaker Donna macGregor, who has a wealth of experience in the field of archaeology and anthropology and will share her work and experiences with us.

On the 28 July 8pm AEST IAFR presents Donna MacGregor – Forensic Anthropology in the Field.  
Donna is a lecturer in forensic science and anatomy, with a background as a forensic anthropologist in the Australian Army Reserves and also worked for the Queensland Police force as a crime scene investigator.

Donna‚Äôs work with the Australian Army as a forensic anthropologist allows the recovery of War Casualties, very important and interesting work. We are lucky enough to have Donna speak about some of her experiences of forensic anthropology in the field and her work with the Army and Police. 

Registration is free for IAFR members, $10 for ASMIRT/NZMIRT members and $20 for non-members.
