And that's a wrap for the 2017 Teddy Bear season! This year we have recruited many enthusiastic new teddy bear doctors and even started branching out to new schools at the Gold Coast! We would like to take a moment to thank our incredibly dedicated organisers Vivek and Danielle for all their hard work throughout the year and for making this initiative such a hit with med students and school students alike. We cannot wait for what's in store for next year!!
The QMJ Jazz Gala has been voted as the Best Social Event of the Year by the Australian Medical Students' Association!! This event is the culmination of a year's worth of rehearsals involving current med students as well as doctors, and promises to live up to this amazing recognition!
Our second Coffeehouse was another huge success!! Students by day and musicians by night, talents across all instruments and genres were put on display at the Black Bear Lodge fuelled by an endless supply of coffee. There are only a few more Ashintosh events before the end of the year, so make sure you join us for some great times!
Congratulations to our medical athletes who participated in the 5km and 10km races at the 2017 Bridge to Brisbane! Pulses were tachycardic as personal records were broken, first-time racers crossed the finish line, all the while being supported by our favourite Big Ted. Check out the pictures below!
