There’ll be plenty of time to ask questions!
About our presenter:
Navid has been practicing paediatric rheumatology in Queensland since 2006. He graduated from the University of Queensland medical school in 1992, and later from RAAF officer training school in 1994. He served as full time medical officer posted at Amberley Airbase until 1997. He undertook training in paediatrics at the Royal Children’s Hospital Brisbane until 2000 when he was offered a training post in paediatric rheumatology in Great Ormond Street Hospital, London. He trained there until 2002 when he accepted a fellowship at the school of Epidemiology in University of Manchester to help setting up a multi-centre study in childhood arthritis and was awarded a PhD degree in 2007. After returning to Brisbane in 2006 Navid worked tirelessly to set up a service for paediatric rheumatology in Queensland. Based at Arthur House in Red Hill he provides regular clinics supported by allied health professionals in Cairns, Townsville, Mackay, Rockhampton, Bundaberg, Sunshine Coast, Toowoomba, Brisbane, and Gold Coast. Providing support for the kids in regional Queensland has been his passion which is shared by the people he works with; notably Zoe’s Angels. His research interest in paediatric rheumatology is the outcomes of rheumatological conditions in young people.
