WILDFIRE is very excited to announce the 2020 iteration of one of the flagship events of our calendar, the Matthew Campbell Memorial Evening. The evening, on 22nd September, is an annual event run in memory of the late Matthew Campbell, a Monash Medical Student who was particularly passionate about Indigenous health.

The annual event is run in memory of the late Matthew Campbell, a Monash Medicine student. In 1994, as a second year medical student, Matthew recognised a lack of Indigenous health teaching within the Medicine curriculum. With inspiration from Professor Roger Short, Matthew, Annette Sanders and their friends organised an educational symposium titled โ€˜Aboriginal health: where do answers lie?โ€™ Matthew tragically passed away 2 days after the forum was held.
In memory of Matthew and his commitment to educating students on important issues affecting Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health, the Matthew Campbell Memorial Evening has been run annually in the years since.

This year, for the first time, we are excited to bring you the Matthew Campbell Memorial Evening online via zoom!
