Personal Reflection:

Why NeuroSurgical Research Foundation Board?

"South Australia is a small state and we need to have a cohesive partnership to be able to continue to "hit above our weight" as we have in the past with the leadership of the founders of neurosurgery in SA- Trevor Dinning and Donald Simpson. It is imperative that research and clinical work are aligned strategically and no time or resource squandered.

The neurosurgeons who were my teachers are obviously important. However it is the patients both past and present who keep me motivated. Their stories, their strengths in adversity and their generosity to allow me into their lives is humbling. That is what is important. "
