Vale Joc Forsyth

We have been saddened to learn of the passing of one of the founding members and long-serving President of the Venereology Society of Victoria (the predecessor to the SHSOV), Dr Jocelyn (Joc) Forsyth.

Dr Joc Forsyth at the 1997 AGM.

He is remembered as a wonderful, generous man, committed to sexual health and of course to public health more broadly. We gratefully acknowledge his service to the society, and offer our condolences to his family, friends and colleagues.

Inaugural PhD Thesis Award

Applications for the SHSOV’s inaugural PhD thesis are now open to recent doctoral graduates in the field of sexual health. If you – or someone you know – may be eligible, we encourage you to nominate or apply. Find out more details here
