How a peace-loving suburban Sydney GP, practising primary prevention her way, ended up in solitary confinement
I've always believed that it's part of my job description as a doctor for me to be aware of environmental issues and to address them as best as I can. So, I've been a long-time supporter of Greenpeace (www.greenpeace.org) and a member of the Medical Association for Prevention of War (in NSW, called Health Practitioners for Global Responsibility; www.mapw.org.au, mapwATmapw.org.au). And, since 1997, this desk-bound GP has worked as a volunteer "medic/deckhand" on Greenpeace ships, like the Rainbow Warrior, for a couple of months each year.
