Healthserve Australia Easter Appeal 2017
Healthserve Australia and CMDFA
“Welcome to 2017 BBQ”
Twenty-three people gathered in Dr and Mrs Burke's
residence in Carlingford
on Saturday 4th February for a
BBQ to celebrate the ongoing work of Healthserve Australia
and CMDFA and launch the year's activities for 2017.
The evening began with a BBQ, and then progressed with a talk from Ben Reardon about his recent time in PNG. Ben and his wife Eleanor, went to PNG for a ten-day tour to survey the current medical practices and needs in rural PNG. We thank him for his powerpoint presentation and explanation of the challenges and problems faced by the PNG people regarding national healthcare. There was a short Q and A that followed and then a wider discussion on the work of Healthserve and CMDFA led by some insightful questions from some of the medical students. We concluded the agenda with a lovely dessert course.
