Meet the Ambassador Council

Meet the Ambassador Council

Published 4th December 2018

Hear from members of The Hopkins Centre Ambassador Council on their story of recovery, rehabilitation and why they want to really make a difference in the way society thinks about disability and how the views of people with disability can drive bold solutions through better engagement in research.

The film is titled, 'Passion for Change' and features several Ambassadors:

  • Global advocate, motor racing enthusiast and presenter for spinal injury events, Mr Alan ' Hammer' Bloore,
  • International singing sensation, disability advocate and peer-leader of the singing cords program, Mr Tim McCallum, and
  • Dr Dinesh Palipana, emergency doctor, researcher with the spinal cord injury project and the first quadriplegic medical intern in Queensland

A special thanks to Mr Kevin Cocks AM, for his involvement and consultation in the making of the film with LiveLab from Griffith Film School.
