Distance is No Barrier to Gaining Knowledge
After attending the Better Living with Your Lung Disease Regional Patient Seminar in Townsville in both 2013 and 2014, Jeanette and Bert Part found themselves wanting more. The Parts valued the knowledge and understanding they had obtained at these events so highly that they recently travelled over 2,500kms to attend the Brisbane Patient Education Day. Jeanette who has COPD, was accompanied by her supportive and caring husband Bert. They rose before dawn and took the first flight to Brisbane returning home after the event. Lung Foundation Australia acknowledges Jeanette and Bert’s commitment, as well as that of the many others who travel long distances to attend our events.
