Associate Professor Al Muderis
A/Prof Al Muderis is an orthopaedic surgeon and clinical lecturer who specialises in hip, knee, trauma and osseointegration surgery. A/Prof Al Muderis studied medicine at Baghdad University, and as a first year resident was forced to flee Iraq when he refused the brutal orders of Saddam's regime. Travelling in a flimsy wooden boat he made Australia his new home, and is now a world leading surgeon in the field of osseointegration surgery. Watch his TED talk, and join us to hear more of his inspiring words.
Tamil Feasts is a social enterprise supporting recently settled Asylum Seekers through the celebration of food and culture. Serving up Sri Lankan fare prepared by Tamil men currently seeking asylum, their feasts seek to share the food heritage of their country with the wider community, while also creating a space for Australians to show their support for people currently seeking asylum.
