Fremantle Rotary supports Hospital Medical Research Foundation

The Fremantle Hospital Medical Research Foundation held its annual award presentation evening recently. The Fremantle Rotary award was presented to Associate Professor Adrian Regli, Consultant in Intensive Care Unit at Fremantle hospital. The award was $15,000 for a research project – “How much pressure given by the artificial ventilator is required to re-open collapsed lung when the pressure in the abdomen is high?”

There were a high number of applicants for awards of which 12 were presented on the night. The funds raised came from our annual charity golf day co-supported by Rotary Club of Attadale, the other half of the fundraising going to Motor Neurone Disease Assoc’n of WA.
