Pacesetters – March 2019

Our next Pacesetters meeting will be on Wednesday, March 20 at the Blue Ridge Clubhouse. Everyone is welcome–Blue Ridge residents, family and friends.

For our March meeting we welcome Blue Ridge resident Rob Liddell, MD who will speak to us about his time as a physician in Papua New Guinea. 

Dr. Liddell is a practicing diagnostic radiologist who also volunteers with the Woodland Park Zoo’s successful Tree Kangaroo Conservation Program.

Rob has recently completed his third trip to Papua New Guinea where he joined with other health professionals to teach basic medical skills and provide medical care to the people living in a very remote conservation area. Because the conservation area is so remote, most resources must come from the landscape, creating a close relationship among the health of humans, wildlife and the health of the environment. Rob will tell stories and show photos not only of providing health care to the people who live in the remote mountains of the Huon Peninsula, but also of his participation in conservation research of Papua New Guinea’s endangered Huon Tree Kangaroo species.

We very much look forward to his presentation of this unique view into a world few are privileged to see first hand.
