He was Chief Medical Officer for the NSW and then the Federal Department of Health from 1983 to 1997. His involvement in global polio eradication initiatives began in 2008 as Chair of the World Health Organization’s Western Pacific Commission for Polio. He is currently a visiting fellow of the School of Public Health and Community Medicine at the University of New South Wales, and a member of the World Health Organization’s Global Commission for the eradication of Poliomyelitis.

We hope you can join us for an engaging discussion.
