Poche Garden Re-vamp

Date: 12th October 2016

Time: 10:00AM-2:00PM

Location: Poche Indigenous Health Centre


he garden outside the Poche Indigenous Health Centre at St Lucia (next to Wordies and the Co-op) is looking a bit sad. As medical students, we want to prevent sad, so we’re teaming up with teams at TIME Indigenous and DEA to spruce it up! 

We’ve managed to get our little greenthumbs/hands on some amazing native plants, and we need some help to settle them into their new homes. We’ll be hard at work from 10am until we finish, so drop by and get your hands dirty, or just take a study break to come say hi and offer some moral support.

Surgical Strike: Documentary Screening

Date: 13th October 2016

Time: 12:00PM-2:00PM

Location: Colin Clark Bdg 39, Rm 105


"Stop Bombing Hospitals” is the simple message that Dr Kathleen Thomas is trying to spread. For those of you lucky enough to have witnessed her speaking at AMSA Convention or GHC this year, or elsewhere, you will no doubt vividly recall the story she shared. This documentary produced by Foreign Correspondent further explores the story of the Kunduz attacks and issues around the bombing of hospitals.

“This 30 minute emotional documentary tells the story of the US Military attack on the Médecins Sans Frontières Hospital in Kunduz, Northern Afghanistan on October 3, 2015 when 200 missiles and countless machine gun rounds destroyed the hospital killing 42 people, including 14 hospital staff members. The documentary is narrated by survivors such as Australian Doctor Kathleen Thomas and Afghani Surgeon Doctor Esmat. It illustrates the tragedy of the event and explores the aftermath and the more global problem of attacks on hospitals in conflict zones worldwide.”
