Summer 2022

Your support enables researchers and clinicians to make new discoveries and develop better treatments for diseases and illnesses, from beginning to end of life. Thank you.

In this edition of Your Foundation you’ll read a wonderful example of how a young woman, and her family, were so grateful for the care they received from the staff in the Intensive and Critical Care Unit (ICCU) at Flinders, that they wanted to find a way to give back.

This is one example of how selfless our Flinders Heroes really are. Many others have experienced the care and compassion of these wonderful people at Flinders, which is why your continued support is so important.
