General Practitioner, Benalla |
Gerard is a rural GP and some times olive farmer living and working in Benalla in North East Victoria. He and his family have been part of the Benalla community for 25 years. He believes that GP’s occupy a unique and respected position in our communities and have an important role in promoting environmental sustainability and action on climate change as a generational issue of public health. As a partner in a 15 doctor clinic he has seen the financial benefits implementing good environmental practices. An important focus has been building connections with other community public and private health providers and broader member based organisations though the activities of the North East Sustainability and Health Group.
