AMA President, Dr Tony Bartone, is urging all Australians to create a new Christmas tradition this year by reaching out and extending a hand of friendship.
“The festive season is a time when friends and family join together to celebrate and connect, but for some people, Christmas can be the hardest and loneliest time of the year,” Dr Bartone said.
