Anthony Radford Oration

Event - Friday, 20th September 2019 | 6:00pm - 8:30pm

A special event for health professionals


The improbable adventures of a global nomad in Central Australia and other places.

Emeritus Professor Anthony Radford was named a Member of the Order of Australia (AM) in June 2019 for significant service to medical education and to global health.

The 4th Anthony Radford Oration will be delivered by Dr Teem-Wing Yip.

Teem-Wing Yip, also known as Nyalpi Nungarai, is probably the only person ever to speak both Cantonese and Pitjantjatjara, and possibly the only person ever to have eaten freshly roasted witchetty grubs with chopsticks. She is a global nomad who has lived in 7 countries so far and has been part of Scottish Country Dance groups in 4 of them. She’s particularly happy if she speaks at least 3 languages in one day.

She is less than half the age of Anthony, her post-nominals are half as long as his, and she’s a little more than half his height. Despite those significant differences (p<0.05), Teem-Wing is like Anthony in being an intrepid general practitioner and public health physician with lots of different projects on the go.
