Australia is now a world leader in successful transplant outcomes, but much more needs to be done to encourage donations that have the potential to save thousands more lives.

Join us for a special media lunch with world renowned transplant surgeon Professor Bob Jones, head of the Austin Hospital Liver Unit, and a panel of leading journalists with a unique perspective on the issue. Senator Derryn Hinch, business journalist Tom Skotnicki and photographer Andrew Chapman are all alive today because of liver donations - and the surgical skills of Bob Jones and his colleagues. This event will be moderated by medical journalist Julia Medew, former health editor of The Age.
