Reception at Government House for Osteoporosis Australia

I was honoured to be a guest at a reception hosted by Mrs Elizabeth Chernov in the presence of Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cornwall on 7 November 2012.

Camilla, wife of Prince Charles, is President of the National Osteoporosis Society (UK). Her Royal Highness told the gathering she was determined to hold an osteoporosis reception during her tour of Australia.The issue of osteoporosis was very dear to her heart as both her mother and grandmother were sufferers.
The event was attended by leading Australian bone experts, researchers, patient groups, society and corporate identities as well as representatives of Osteoporosis Australia.

I was one of two representing the South East Melbourne Osteoporosis Support Group of which I was a founding member.
