A Taste Of (Basketball) Success

Alphington Sports Medicine Physio Madeleine Ellis has just returned from Europe where she got the sweet taste of success in the form of World Championship gold with the Sapphires, Australia's U17 girls basketball team.

She said it was an amazing trip and team to work for - with the highlight definitely being the team's semi final and first ever win over the USA!

Alphington Sports Medicine Clinic's Madeleine Ellis (physiotherapist) traveled to East Timor recently to volunteer with the East Timor Eye Program - She has been good enough to recount her exerieces for us

April of this year I was invited to travel with the East Timor Eye Program to lend assistance with a surgical eye team in Maliana, a remote town on the border of Indonesia. During my stay I was lucky enough to assist and work with the Physiotherapist at Maliana Hospital.
