SA FOV President?s Report FOV Australia

AGM 22nd October 2022

SA FOV did not host any fund-raising dinners in 2020 and 2021 as a result of the impact of COVID 19. However, SA FOV participated in the national drive to raise funds to help CMC to deal with the dreaded 2nd wave which led to shortages in oxygen and high mortality in the country. CMC Alumni association partnered with Health Serve Australia to contribute towards Mission Hospitals with the help of CMAI who coordinated the distribution of funds in India.

SA FOV held its first clinical meeting after the COVID 19 restrictions were lifted in May 2021 when Dr Anil Roy, Respiratory physician presented an informative talk. This year the clinical meeting was held again in May and Dr Boopalan Ramasamy, Orthopaedic Surgeon and Dr Amit Tirkey, Head and Neck Surgeon from CMC Vellore spoke at the meeting. The AGM 2022 will be held on 21st October 2022 and Mr Peter Kirk, previous treasurer of SA FOV and Mrs Joan Kirk will be guest speakers.

SA FOV has a new Facebook page, courtesy Gary Fielke.

SA FOV and Adelaide university signed an MOU in August 2021. This will provide bilateral opportunities for research and teaching collaboration.

The SA FOV Committee met this September to discuss future direction of the committee and fund-raising strategies and decided to finalise future fund-raising strategies including next year?s plan. This was discussed at the AGM on 21st October.

Thank you,
