A word with… Brad Rossiter

Brad is one of our individual members and an outstanding patient advocate and health consumer representative who is happy to tell his story, as well as listen to others to help tell theirs.
At the age of five, Brad was diagnosed with on-set Type 1 Diabetes. He managed – played sports, moved to Batemans Bay, became a butcher, married, and had a child. But in 1996, his health took a turn for the worse. Kidney disease and eye troubles started catching up with him.

A word with… Karen Filocamo

Karen has played many roles in the NSW health consumer movement. In between others, she was also our interim Executive Manager for a while and she has led our health consumer representative training programs for five years. Retiring in late 2017 to spend more time with her grandkids doesn’t seem to have slowed her down. She was recently appointed to the Northern Sydney Local Health District (NSLHD) Board.
