iDEA18 Workshops Co-ordinator | General Practitioner, Cairns, QLD

I am passionate about caring for our planet because the health of humanity is intimately linked with the health of the ecosystem within which we live.

I have been actively volunteering with DEA since April 2017 and have not looked back. My hope is that health professionals will become aware of our responsibility to protect and support the natural environment as part of protecting the health of our patients.

I am also passionate about health facilities reducing their environmental footprints and becoming places of community education about humanity’s interdependence with the natural world and how we can tread lightly in the earth during our lifetime.
