Associate Professor Peter Gonski joins Activus as an Ambassador
Published: Wednesday 1st January, 2020
Activus Transport is pleased to announce that Associate Professor Peter Gonski has joined the organisation as an Ambassador. His appointment comes at a time when Activus is actively promoting the benefits of community transport services available to members of the Sutherland Shire community who are unable to access public transport due to physical, social or geographical factors.
Associate Professor Gonski’s acceptance of the Ambassador role underpins his belief that affordable community transport plays a crucial role in supporting positive health and ageing outcomes by ensuring people are able to attend medical appointments, social outings and community activities.
As Director of Southcare at Sutherland Hospital and Community Services, Associate Professor at the Faculty of Medicine, UNSW, and Clinical Stream Director for Aged Care and Rehabilitation, South Eastern Sydney Local Health District, Associate Professor Gonski is a strong advocate for improved community integrated care.
His appointment as Activus Ambassador also follows the launch of the new Rapid Assessment, Diagnosis and Intervention Unit Sutherland (RADIUS) at Sutherland Hospital earlier this year.
Activus Transport looks forward to engaging with Associate Professor Gonski, who will also be speaking at the upcoming How to master the Aged Care Maze event in Gymea, held in February 2020.
We believe that our work with Professor Gonski will be an important step in helping people navigate and get the best out of the current aged care system and improve the wellbeing of the local community.
