The municipality of Amfiklia in south-central Greece -- now the Amfiklia-Elatia extended municipality -- will inaugurate the Academician Georgios Sklavounos Museum on Sunday, Nov. 28, in the township, which lies on the eastern foothills of Mt. Parnassus.
The inauguration of the museum and its exhibits, in cooperation with the University of Athens medical school, will take place in a specially modified hall within the Amfiklia town hall.
A bust of the noted early 20th century anatomist and medical instructor will also be unveiled during the event, sponsored by Athens medical school professors P. Skandalakis and D.A. Lappas.
The German-educated Sklavounos, a native of the Amfiklia district, is considered as the father of modern anatomy by generations of 20th Greek physicians, with his opus being the 1906 edition “The Human Anatomy”.
