The news article reads as below:
LAST month, Eastbrooke Medical Centres opened Eastbrooke Family Clinic Burleigh Waters within the Burleigh Home Space Centre on Bermuda St.
Communications Manager for Eastbrooke, Deborah Ferreira, said the new medical, health and wellness centre opened on May 4. “It has a range of professional and friendly doctors while offering a range of services including physiotherapy, podiatry, occupational therapy, exercise physiology, diabetes education and dietician,” Ms Ferreira said.
“A brand new pharmacy is due to open on June 22 and new patients are welcome either by walk in or calling.”
Meanwhile, Ms Ferreira said Dr Zara Mason (pictured), of the recently opened clinic, was in a team of four participating in the Kokoda Challenge Gold Coast on July 18 and 19. “The Kokoda Challenge on the Gold Coast is hailed as Australia’s toughest team endurance event and is a gruelling cross country, four-person team event held over 96km with a time limit for completion of 39 hours,” Ms Ferreira said.
“Participants, with the help of their support crew, trek a 96km course that leads along fire trails, crosses 12 creeks and summits 5000 metres of vertical elevation. “The goal is to finish as a complete team of four, within 39 hours, in honour of the spirit forged on the Kokoda Track in 1942; courage, endurance, mateship and sacrifice.”
Dr Mason said the event was the biggest physical challenge she had ever taken on.
“I’m thrilled to be doing this with my 15-year-old daughter and two close friends and to be supporting the Kokoda Youth Foundation,” she said.
Ms Ferreira said Eastbrooke Family Clinic Burleigh Waters was supporting Dr Mason by providing a community raffle open to all people and patients within the clinic for only $2.
Eastbrooke Medical Centres director Simon de Picot said the organisation was happy to match the funds raised by the centre to support the great cause.
