Lead/Rural Health/Research/Collaboration/Community Values
Interesting story from the University of Sydney, who has a campus in Broken Hill -

Broken Hill Department of Rural Health (http://sydney.edu.au/medicine/drh/)

about community values and collaboration in #BrokenHill. I found the article via Twitter in a Tweet from @DrNinaBerry (Dr Nina Berry).

Worth a read - http://sydney.edu.au/news/staff/2576.html?newscategoryid=223&newsstoryid=14636

The article touches on lead in Broken Hill and the recent announcement (13 February 2015) by Kevin Humphries MP, the Minister for Natural Resources, Lands and Water, and Minister for Western NSW, for the NSW Government to commit more than $13 million to address the issue of high blood lead levels in children in the City.

Professor David Lyle Head of University Department for Rural Health (UDRH) and research fellow (UDHR) Frances Boreland who's called Broken Hill home for two decades and, like me has falling in love with the city, welcomed the news

Thanks Dr Berry.
