GOLD COAST MOTHER'S DAY CITY CELEBRATION 2021  

THE POWER OF A MOTHER'S LOVE

SPECIAL GUEST STAR: QUEENSLAND AUSTRALIAN OF THE YEAR 2021  - DINESH PALIPANA OAM

Join women in business and community from across our great city for this inspirational morning on THURSDAY MAY 6  2021 

AS WE CELEBRATE THIS IMPORTANT DAY, WITNESS FOR YOURSELF THE POWER OF A MOTHER'S LOVE!

We invite you to bring your mother and daughters along to this very special morning of inspiration.

 Dinesh was awarded the Medal of the Order of Australia in 2019. He was the third Australian to be awarded a Henry Viscardi Achievement Award. Dinesh is the Queensland Australian of the Year for 2021.

Dinesh;s story of hope and inspiration is nothing short of incredible. With his mother by his side, he has achieved what was considered impossible after halfway through medical school, he was involved in a catastrophic motor vehicle accident that caused a cervical spinal cord injury. 

Dinesh was the first quadriplegic medical intern in Queensland, and the second person to graduate medical school with quadriplegia in Australia. Dinesh was the Gold Coast Hospital and Health Service’s Junior Doctor of the Year in 2018.

Dinesh earned a Bachelor of Laws (LLB), prior to completing his Doctor of Medicine (MD) at the Griffith University. He has completed an Advanced Clerkship in Radiology at the Harvard University. 

As a result of his injury and experiences, Dinesh has been an advocate for inclusivity in medicine and the workplace generally. He is a founding member of Doctors with Disabilities Australia.

Dinesh is currently a resident medical officer at the Gold Coast University Hospital. He is a lecturer at the Griffith University and adjunct research fellow at the Menzies Health Institute of Queensland. He has research interests in spinal cord injury, particularly with novel rehabilitation techniques.

Dinesh is the Gold Coast University Hospital’s representative in the Australian Medical Association Queensland’s Council of Doctors in Training. He is a member of the scientific advisory committee of the Perry Cross Spinal Research Foundation, disability advisory council at Griffith University, and the Ambassador Council at the Hopkins Centre. He is an ambassador for Physical Disability Australia. He is a doctor for the Gold Coast Titans physical disability rugby team.
