Peter is from the Wiradjuri people of NSW. Peter has worked with the Tobwabba Aboriginal Medical Service since 2002, and describes himself as an Aboriginal man who loves being a doctor. Peter loves working one on one with his patients and finds a source of satisfaction in the knowledge that, in his own small way, the work that he does contributes toward closing the gap between Indigenous and non-Indigenous health outcomes. In 2008, Peter pursued his other passion – making good doctors – and took on the position of Associate Professor, Indigenous Medical Education and Head of Discipline, Indigenous Health at Newcastle University. Peter has been a member of the AIDA Board for 8 years and President from 2009-2012.
