Have you seen our speaker line-up?
So far we've announced eight of our speakers, coming from a diversity of backgrounds – both personally and professionally. You can read more about each one on our website, including Dr Rolf Gomes, who founded Heart of Australia – an 18-wheeler semi-trailer ‘clinic’ bringing specialist healthcare to rural and remote Queensland, and Kristina Wild, a self-taught photographer who travels the globe capturing the beauty, diversity and authenticity of human moments.
Stay tuned on social for more speaker announcements comin' at you!
Today we look forward to returning to Charleville, Queensland, Australia for endocrinology and cardiology clinics with Dr Robert Perel and Dr Merryn Thomae, wrapping up in Roma on Thursday. Pop and say hi if you’re in town! #bighearttruck #ruralhealth
