One of the greatest pleasures of the Detroit conference was the opportunity to meet and talk with MHRAs from around the world. I know that all the Brits who made the trip felt the same, and I’m sure others did too. On one of the days I was taking a walk by the lake, getting some fresh air, near the building where the conference was being held. I don’t recall the name of the lake, only that it was so damned large, you could barely see the opposite shore. I’m not even sure if the opposite shore was in the United States, or Canada. But an Australian MHRA I recognised was sitting on a bench looking out over the lake, Dr Greg Canning. He works as a GP in Queensland. We had a lengthy chat, and I recall thinking he’s the sort of man anyone would be pleased to have as their GP.
Dean Esmay’s just interviewed Greg about domestic violence – here.
Hopefully it won’t be too long before AVfM announces its plans for next year’s conference. Make it to the event, if you can. The day is coming when these events will be recognized as being of historical importance. That day can’t come soon enough.
