Episode 6 - Dr Colin Kong (Doctor of Medicine)
After a long break, we are back with another episode, which was recorded at the end of 2020. In it, our year 12 students (Makayla and Cooper) chat with former South Sydney High School student, Dr Colin Kong. We ask him about his journey from student to doctor and the benefits and challenges of his work. He shares some great advice for any students listeners who may want to follow a similar path. We also discuss his fascinating research into cancer treatment and ask the difficult question... "how close are we to a cure?" We apologise for our absence, but we have a lot of exciting guests lined up, so stay tuned for more episodes!
