Endometriosis Australia’s Brisbane High Tea was fabulous, with keynote speakers Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk and Emily Seebolm OAM. I thank all of our Ambassadors who attended, including radio queen and podcast princess Ellie Angel-Mobbs, media personality and PR star Mel Greig, along with Endo Champion Laura Furiosi (Bossy Mummy, a business mentor program). We were also thrilled to welcome our newest Ambassador, the inspirational Kylie Brown ‘Endo Runner,’ who was joined by husband and AFL legend Jonathon Brown.
We are grateful for the continued support of our Board, who are all themselves volunteers, including Medical Director Associate Professor Anusch Yazdani, and Treasurer Mariana Von Lucken, who also attended the High Tea. They were joined by Professor Gita Mishra and Professor Grant Montgomery from the University of Queensland, who serve with me on the World Congress on Endometriosis 2025, as well as many medical professionals.
Additionally, we’re so proud that the raffle raised $1,795.00 towards Endometriosis Australia’s Nurse Education Fund. This fund provides scholarships to nurses to build patient-centered education to raise awareness for 100 nurses over the next five years. This sum brings the Endometriosis Australia Nurses Fund to over $8,000.00.
Endometriosis Australia extends its gratitude to all the wonderful volunteers, ably led by our brilliant Queensland volunteer coordinator Anna Thomas, and the individuals and businesses who generously donated prizes for our raffle.
