PDG Trish O’Reilly.
It is with deep sadness that ROMAC New Zealand learns of the death of PDG Trish O’Reilly on September 5th, 2019.
Trish was instrumental in establishing ROMAC in New Zealand in 2004 and facilitating the treatment of our first patient from Vanuatu in 2005. She was the inaugural New Zealand representative and worked alongside Dr Max Morris, the first New Zealand Medical Director.
Trish most recently joined the current ROMAC team in Sydney in March 2018, to celebrate the 30th Anniversary of ROMAC.
She maintained a constant interest in ROMAC throughout the years and never failed to give of herself selflessly to all that moved her heart in her service to humanity.
