Future leaders gather in Canberra
A dozen of the AMA’s best and brightest merged on Canberra over the first weekend in September for the Federal AMA Future Leaders Program.
Young doctors from each State and Territory took part in an intensive schedule aimed at exposing them to the world of political advocacy, particularly in the health policy realm.
The group toured Parliament House and met with senior political advisers from both sides of politics, committee clerks, health advocates, and AMA advisers.
The particpants were (as pictured here on the steps of the Parliament House foyer):
Back row - Dr Michael Wu (Tas), Dr Brian Fernandes (NSW), Dr Malcolm Forbes (Vic),
Middle row - Dr Benjamin Wakefield (Qld), Dr Rebeka Stepto (ACT), Dr Mikaela Seymour (Qld), Dr Georgina Taylor (NT), Dr Alison Sorensen (WA),
Front row - Dr Sanjay Hettige (NSW), Dr Hannah Szewczyk (SA), Dr Chantelle Berenger (NSW), Dr Laura Raiti (Vic).
