Dr Elyse Marx from Murray Bridge Clinic was our after dinner Speaker at this weeks Rotary Club of Murray Bridge meeting. Her story is of a Murray Bridge girl who has become a high achiever and contributes to her local community. Chairperson Rotarian Jenny Alexander Walters introduced her as her piano student and then let her tell her story. She was born in the Murray Bridge Soldiers Memorial Hospital went to Murray Bridge North Primary School, then Murray Bridge High School, worked at the Swimming Pool, joined the Murray Bridge Concert Band, and went on a student exchange to Germany. She worked after school as a volunteer with the Ambulance Service and went on to do Medicine at Flinders University and came to Bridge Clinic as a student in third Year as a placement. She has completed her Specialist GP training and is now at Bridge Clinic and in addition enrolled at the University of Tasmania in a further Degree in remote medicine and extreme environments as further training. It was great to come home to Murray Bridge, to be able to catch up with family, and be part of this community again. She fully engaged her audience with her enthusiastic approach to future options. Student exchange has been a big influence in her experience, and stimulated travel and understanding of overseas cultures. Rural medicine incorporates a lot of extra demands, is highly rewarding, has great linkages with local hospitals and community connection. A memorable quote was "Do what you love and love what you do". Her proud parents Dayle and Rodney Waltravitz were in the audience.

The Rotary Polio Plus Program through the Polio Ute with Rotarians from the Rotary Club of Murray Bridge participated in the Murray Bridge Christmas Parade and Festival at the Sturt Reserve Riverfront yesterday. The Ute has been the focus of the Murray Bridge High School Interact Club along with Rotarians enlightening student leaders at three Murray Bridge schools, Tyndale, Unity and MBHS about the Polio pandemic in the early previous century, peaking in the 1950's, the lessons learnt, its current status, how virus is spread, and relevance to the covid. The weather for the parade at 4pm was perfect and stayed that way for the rest of the day and evening which the large crowd enjoyed. Congratulations should go for the Covid planning and execution to the Rural City of Murray Bridge, Business Murray Bridge and AOK Events enabling everyone to participate and enjoy the Event. Also the new sponsors of the Event including the Bridgeport Hotel, Kookaburra Homes and Spry Engineering. You could feel the excitement of the crowd at the Parade, during the Festival particularly around the rides and the live music presented by the Station, and then at the fireworks at 9am. Well Done Murray Bridge. Wishing you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

End Polio Now

In 1985 Rotary launched PolioPlus to immunize every child in the world against polio. Working with our partners and members of the global health community, together we will end polio.
Through the science of vaccines, Rotary & partners have saved nearly 19 million children from becoming paralyzed by polio. Learn more about our work to End Polio Now and how you can get involved: https://on.rotary.org/3eqtrrr

Rotary has been working to eradicate polio for more than 35 years, and we’ve made incredible progress in the fight to rid the world of it forever.

As a founding partner of the Global Polio Eradication Initiative, we've helped to reduced polio cases by more than 99.9 percent.

It’s crucial to eradicate polio from the last two countries where it remains endemic and to keep other countries polio-free.

If all eradication efforts stopped today, within 10 years, polio could paralyze as many as 200,000 children each year.

What is polio?

Polio, or poliomyelitis, is a paralyzing and potentially deadly infectious disease that most commonly affects children under the age of 5. The virus spreads from person to person, typically through contaminated water. It can then attack the nervous system.
