On Thursday 1 November 2018, more than 130 dedicated and highly valued supporters of THRF attended our Basil Hetzel Society Thank You Luncheon at the Glenelg Golf Club.
Attendees were treated to a very interesting and informative discussion from our four guest speakers who reflected how incredibly far medical research has come in treating diabetes, pancreatitis and kidney disease. The guest speakers were Professor Toby Coates – Director of Kidney and Pancreatic Islet Transplantation at the Royal Adelaide Hospital; Mr Christopher Drogemuller – Principal Medical Scientist; patient Margaret Harrigan who was the first person in South Australia to receive an islet transplant; and her husband Kerry.
A special thank you to our extremely generous sponsors including Glenelg Golf Club and Wine Direct, and the speakers for donating their time to be involved in a very well-received panel discussion.
THRF would also like to thank all our valued and loyal supporters who attended the event, whose contribution is making an incredible impact towards the South Australian community, enabling us to continue funding world-class medical research and patient care right here in SA.
