Join us at H20 Restaurant in the Burnett Function Room for our March 2021 event. We will do a little networking, enjoy a yummy breakfast (with all tastes catered for), catch up with the latest BBWN news, and enjoy celebrating International Women's day with guest speaker Dr Pretissha Harrichund.
IWD 2021 has a campaign theme of #ChooseToChallenge.
A challenged world is an alert world. Individually, we're all responsible for our own thoughts & actions - all day, every day.
We can choose to challenge and call out gender bias and inequality. We can choose to seek out and celebrate women's achievements. Collectively we can ALL help create an inclusive world. From challenge comes change, so let's all choose to challenge.
Over breakfast Dr Harrichund will share stories of her journey as a South African trained Specialist Consultant with Dual recognition as a Physician and Endocrinologist.
Dr Harrichund has a Masters degree in Medicine and has published the results of a study she conducted on renal transplant patients in the local Endocrine Journal.
She has worked in the Bundaberg public hospital , but left in 2013 to set up Private practice . She also took up Directorship of the local Medical School - Rural Clinical School of Bundaberg that same year.
In 2014, Dr Harrichund had to make a difficult decision to pursue academia, or to focus on her clinical work. While she loved teaching, she felt a great responsibility to her patients, so she left the school to focus solely on her private practice.
Having knowledge of the public system, the medical education system, and the Private hospital system allowed her to identify gaps in healthcare delivery which led her to create Precision Healthcare Centre.
She aims to close the gap by employing a holistic model of care.
From the wonderful Chef's at H20 Restaurant, we will be enjoying Fresh Bundy Juice, Tea, Coffee and an alternate drop breakfast of:
Bacon & Eggs Benny - bacon, 2 surfie chick poached eggs, toasted house made artisan bread, dressed greens & hollandaise sauce
Avocado Breaky Salad - Avocado, Fennel, Cherry Tomato, Mandarin, Red Onion, Fetta, Radish, Rocket, 2 surfie chick poached eggs, Salsa Verde, Toasted house made artisan bread.
