(We’re pleased to add another post from Satine Winter, this one about the opening of the new Griffith Health Centre at the Gold Coast on 19 July)

New Griffith health Centre

On Friday afternoon, 19th July 2013, I was fortunate to attend the official opening of the new Griffith Health Centre on the Gold Coast campus.  Several hundred guests attended the opening and were treated to the Jani Haenke String Quartet from the Qld Conservatorium followed by several official speakers and the unveiling of the commemorative plaque by the Governor-General of Australia, Quentin Bryce AC CVO.

Tours of the Health Centre were conducted and guests were treated to spectacular views of the Gold Coast from the 10th floor.  What is fantastic is that all students, even postgraduates, can access services for considerably reduced fees (especially in comparison to private practice).  I have been accessing physiotherapy from the Health Centre for the last month and they have been amazing!
