#CrazySocks4Docs Breakfast 2021
Adelaide event for all South Australian Doctors, Medical Students, and their partners.
Crazysocks4docs was founded by Victorian Cardiologist, Dr Geoff Toogood who describes his cause to be about breaking the stigma surrounding mental health in Doctors.
"This is both self stigma and what is reinforced by the culture of Medicine. We are about challenging those that continue to reinforce this to change their ways. We are advocating for those that seek and need help have a safe and confidential place to receive it" said Dr Toogood.
This special event on the national day of #crazysocks4docs is in support of Dr Toogood's CrazySocks4Docs Foundation, is hosted by Doctors' Health SA, SASMOA and ASMOF (SA Branch). We invite all South Australian doctors, medical students and their partners to come together and raise the awareness of doctors' mental health and decrease the stigma for doctors seeking vital support when they need it.
Special Guest Presenter is Professor Michael Kidd, Deputy Chief Medical Officer, Department of Health.
