Active Labour: memoirs of a working-class doctor

Moreland City Libraries - Read More program

Event Date: 6 March 2019
Author / Presenters: Percy Rogers, in conversation with Phil Cleary

7.45 pm, Brunswick Library

Moreland local Percy Rogers’ memoir is a testament to one man’s passionate belief in the power of medicine. At 15, Percy enrolled in free night school, the first steps toward a long and varied medical career. He has worked around the world from Hobart’s busiest hospital to community healthcare in 1960s Moreland; from remote Arnhem Land to Saudi Arabia. Percy, in conversation with Phil Cleary, will discuss Moreland then and now, and healthcare as a human right.
