The Lions Club of Kogarah presents cheque for $1,000 to SSMRF

At their meeting at Georges River 16ft Sailing Club on Wednesday night, The Lions Club of Kogarah presented a cheque for $1,000 to St George & Sutherland Medical Research Foundation. The generous donation was in honour of former member of Kogarah Lions, Geraldine Daley, who sadly passed away earlier this year.

Pam Brown, CEO, St George & Sutherland Medical Research Foundation, acknowledged the amazing support that Geraldine provided to the Foundation over many years, and offered her condolences to Kogarah Lions Club.

The group was impressed by the presentation by Dr SJ Shen, winner of Best Clinical Research and Basic Science Oral Presentations at the St George and Sutherland Hospitals Medical Research Symposium last month. The first place prize was sponsored by Lions Club of Kogarah. Dr Shen’s presentation detailed the effect of gut influence on the immune environment in pre-clinical hepatocellular carcinoma; research carried out at the UNSW Microbiome Research Centre (MRC).

Dr Jordan Maxton, who won the Alberto Albani Healing Narrative Award at the Symposium, delivered his winning narrative at the meeting and was congratulated on his success by Kogarah Lions President Sue Baker and members of the Albani family.
