At the outset, let me say that I enjoy every conference at which I MC/Facilitate. If I didn’t, I’d be doing something else!

But occasionally I get to do one which transcends the others and the SARRAH conference at the Hotel Grand Chancellor in Launceston this past week was just such an event.

What made this one so special was the people; the people who are podiatrists, physios, dieticians, psychologists, occupational therapists and the plethora of other professions that come under the heading of allied health professionals. Add to that the fact they work in rural and remote Australia and you have a pretty special bunch of people who are DEDICATED to working in these areas.

This is then is S.A.R.R.A.H, or Services for Australian Rural & Remote Allied Health, an organisation dedicated to ensuring that people who live in these parts of Australia receive the best in allied health care from the best providers of these services.

Two years ago, when I first MC’d their conference in Broome, I did a sort of Victor Kiam: I liked the organisation so much I became a member!

This conference had energy, innovation, awesome speakers and a renewal of commitment to rural and remote Australia. I loved every minute of it!
