Liver transplant specialist to speak at community breakfast

The doctor that made Liver Transplanting interesting breakfast conversation is back again, with her unique take on what happens in her practice every day.

With leading surgeon and author Dr Kellee Slater as the special guest speaker at a Buderim Foundation breakfast, it will change the way you look at medicine.

The very special breakfast will be held on Thursday, 26th March at Buderim Tavern where Dr Slater will talk about the human body and its power to heal with the help of 21st century medical procedures.

Buderim Foundation Events Director Lloyd Edwards said everyone was thrilled to again have Dr Slater as the Foundation’s special guest.

“We hosted a breakfast featuring Dr Slater in 2013 and her presentation was informative but also very entertaining,” Mr Edwards said.

“This time around tickets are limited so you need to book early to avoid missing this special event.”

Dr Kellee Slater is a hepato-biliary, pancreatic and liver transplant surgeon. She is also a general surgeon and performs all types of abdominal surgery including hernias, splenectomy and laparoscopic surgery. Her special interest is complex incisional hernia. Dr Slater also specialises in the care of high risk and critically ill patients.

“Dr Slater, who spent her school years in Nambour, is also a celebrated author having written How to Do a Liver Transplant and Stories from a Surgical Life.

“Just the way she describes the adrenaline-charged world of transplant surgery will have you on the edge of your seat,” Mr Edwards said.

The breakfast will be held at the Buderim Tavern on Burnett St, Buderim on Thursday 26th March at 7am for a prompt 7.15am start. Tickets are $40 person, or $20 for students and are available from the Foundation’s website at Tickets can also be purchased from the Old Post Office in Buderim.

Proudly supported by Foundation sponsors Buderim Pharmacy, Eden Lea on Buderim and Sunshine Toyota, the breakfast is anticipated to sell out quickly, with funds raising going towards the Foundation’s investment fund, which provides on-going funding for community projects through the Foundation’s Grants Program.

The Foundation is a philanthropic, not-for-profit organisation, which generates income from donations and bequests from community members and provides grants for community projects now and into the future.
