Closing Address: Changing Lives

Munjed Al Muderis

The story of world-leading surgeon Munjed Al Muderis s truly inspiring: from boat refugee fleeing Iraq to mandatory detention, released to work in regional Victoria, before rising to become a world-leader in the life-saving surgery that allows victims of trauma to regain mobility after the loss of limbs. His return to Iraq to perform that surgery on victims of the war against ISIS is told in his recent book, Going Back. Hosted by Bendigo councillor Rod Fyffe OAM, this courageous and brilliant doctor talks about what it meant to him to revisit the country he was forced to flee, sharing with us an exceptional experience of hope and resilience
