Lennox doctor gets point across

WHEN Lennox Head mum and postdoctoral research fellow with the Northern Rivers University Department of Rural Health, Sabrina Pit, heard the Prime Minister was visiting yesterday, she came prepared.

Not only did she bring her two daughters to see him, she also brought her most recent research paper (on ill-health, employment and retirement) in the hope she could pass it on to Mr Rudd’s wife, Therese Rein.

“Ms Rein has worked in employment for a long time and I would love her feedback. She is a great role model for women,” she said.

After opening the new student accommodation at the facility, a joint venture of the University of Sydney, SCU and the NCAHS, Mr Rudd singled out Ms Pit and her daughters of his own accord.

“He asked me what I did so I gave him the research paper and I think he said he would pass it on,” she said.

“But really, I think he was more interested in the kids,” she laughed.

With an election looming, that certainly came as no surprise to the PM’s posse.
