New Zealand/Australia LAM connections

After LAM Trust Director, Bronwyn Gray’s recent a trip to Sydney and discussions with LAM scientific and medical colleagues, the first joint NZ/Australia questionaire of LAM patients in both our countries is underway.

NZ LAM patients are to be contacted during October and will be given the opportunity of taking part in the questionnaire.

The September/October 2002 patient survey has been prepared by Dr Alessandra Sandrini, who is the research fellow at St Vincent’s Hospital in Sydney. Dr Sandrini is working with Dr Deborah Yates, Medical Advisor of the LAM Australia and we very much look forward to continuing collaboration on LAM Matters between our two countries.

A special thanks to Ivy O’Leary of Auckland who generously funded Bronwyn Gray’s recent trip to Sydney.
