Feedback

“It exceeded my expectations! I had no idea how amazing how big LIME was and how brilliantly organised it would be. I met a range of likeminded and friendly people who’s friendships I will hopefully keep for life. I was motivated and moved by the speakers and their lessons in improving Indigenous Medical education inspired me to recognise and improve such areas in my own university”
