It was something very special for our Heart of Australia team to be invited to the ISAAC Regional Health Expo in Moranbah this month – an event that also aims to improve health outcomes by providing knowledge to rural and remote health professionals.
Our founder Dr Rolf Gomes was one of series of guest speakers on the day who discussed the key topic of cardiac care in rural settings. People taking part also were able to learn of the latest expert insights on other health issues, including mental health, diabetes, gynaecology, asthma and emergency management. We also thank our foundation partner Arrow Energy for supporting this event.
The dream of a second Heart of Australia rolling clinic vehicle edged nearer to reality with financial support from this month’s Rotary Club of Jimboomba South-east Queensland Expo – a remarkably exciting three days showcasing all things camping, caravanning, fishing, 4×4 activities, rural affairs and leisure.
Heart of Australia founder, Dr Rolf Gomes, has made it clear – with deep appreciation to the Rotary Club – that money raised from the event will go towards the development and operation of a second Heart of Australia specialist medical services vehicle.
