The continuing thirst for knowledge
The Heart of Australia General Practitioner education program, sponsored by key supporter, Bayer, just keeps ramping up!
Through November, the numbers of practitioners joining the program continued to climb after a November 6 presentation by Dr. Damian Roper on stress echocardiography in Longreach – with doctors from the local hospital and medical practices, including from Barcaldine and from further afield as doctors dialled in to follow the presentation.
Then, on November 13, six doctors from the local medical centre plus strong supporter of the Heart of Australia program, Dr Desley Marshall, got together at the Jolly Swagman Motel in Goondiwindi for an update on coronary artery medicine from Dr Matthew Pincus.
The strong turnout continued on November 18 in Roma with doctors from Roma Hospital (as well as nurses from the hospital’s cardiac services unit), the Maranoa Medical Centre and Roma Clinic arrived at the Starlight Motor Inn to hear from cardiac rhythm specialist, Dr Robert Perel. Thanks, too, to Menarini for supporting the evening.
