Show Notes

Dinesh Palipana is doctor, lawyer and disability advocate.

He became QLD Australian of the year in 2021, and was the first person with a spinal cord injury to graduate from medicine in Queensland.

Dinesh talks to us about his ‘personal why’ and how it has supported him to thrive in a career he loves despite initial well-meaning but misplaced concerns from people around him at the time of his recovery.
