15: Fate Spinning Towards Hope – Dr Dinesh Palipana OAM – Queensland’s first quadriplegic doctor

by | Dec 16, 2020

Dr Dinesh Palipana OAM is an Australian doctor, lawyer and disability advocate. He is the first quadriplegic doctor in Queensland, Australia, working in the busy Emergency Department of Gold Coast University Hospital.

Dinesh is the second person with quadriplegia to graduate as a doctor in Australia and the first with spinal cord injury, after refusing to let his motor vehicle accident deter him from his dream of becoming a doctor.

But this was not the only hurdle Dinesh has overcome in his life – hear his inspirational story as he spoke frankly with @hanyaoversby about his challenges and his extraordinary determination to overcome them and be a force for good in the world in the realms of diverse ability in Australia.
