You are invited to attend a Women in Business Luncheon event with guest speaker Dr Bo Remenyi, NT Australian of the Year on Thursday June 7th 2018, 12.00pm - 2.00pm, Double Tree by Hilton, Barrett Drive, Alice Springs
As a junior doctor working in remote communities, Dr Bo Reményi filled out too many death certificates for children dying of preventable heart disease. Today, Bo is a paediatric cardiologist tackling the Northern Territory’s rate of Rheumatic Heart Disease, currently the highest in the world.
She is also completing her PhD in the early detection of Rheumatic Heart Disease. Bo’s contribution is even more extraordinary, given she arrived in Australia as a political refugee after fleeing Hungary as a teenager. She started school in Australia without any English language skills, but today Bo’s education, expertise and sheer hard work is saving lives.
