2017 Spring Edition


The AMAC NSW Annual General Meeting was held on Sunday 27 August 2017. The main topic of the meeting was Men’s Health with 3 guest speakers, Dr. Anthony Morrow, endocrinologist, Prof. Henry Woo, urologist and Dr. Michael Lowy, sexual health physician.


At the meeting, the following elections were made:

  • Mark Teng – State President
  • Bill Tran – State Secretary
  • Leonie Yen – State Treasurer


I would also like to welcome Drs. Bill Tran (Campbelltown), Shobha Balu (Blue Mountain) and Louise Arnold (Cooma) as new members of the AMAC NSW Committee and look forward to the diversity of expertise they will contribute.


This year is the beginning of the triennium of the QICPD RACGP 2017 – 2019.  I strongly encourage members to fulfill the requirements for category 1 RACGP QICPD sooner rather than later.  There are several category 1 QICPD activities around the country.

Balmain Acupuncture Clinic

I would also like to remind everyone that the Balmain Acupuncture Clinic at Balmain Hospital is open to registered medical practitioners who wish to refresh their skills in acupuncture.  The Balmain Acupuncture Clinic is open from 2pm – 6pm every Thursdays.  I work in the clinic and am happy to provide further training to anyone who would like to improve their knowledge and skills.  Practitioners who wish to work in the Clinic are required to have AHPRA registration, a Police Criminal Check and a Working With Children Certificate.  If you are interested in receiving further information about this, please contact Margaret or me via the above contact details.
