A stellar line up

Dr Jean Carruthers

The British College of Aesthetic Medicine (BCAM) holds its first in-person conference since 2019 this September with an opening address by global injectables pioneer Dr Jean Carruthers.

The event at London’s Church House, Westminster, on Saturday 10 September is open to member and non-member doctors or dentists. Dr Carruthers, who pioneered the use of botulinum toxin in aesthetic medicine with her husband Dr Alastair Carruthers, is a highly sought-after speaker on the world stage and will also present exclusive masterclasses for BCAM members the following day.

BCAM Vice President Dr Catherine Fairris, who oversees planning of the annual conference, said: “We are excited to welcome such an influential and globally respected speaker to our first in-person event in three years. After two successive virtual events, it will be incredible to host a live event with such a high calibre opening presentation and a wealth of other impressive speakers.
