Local doctor named Young Aussie of the Year
Royal North Shore Hospital doctor, Daniel Nour, has been named the 2022 Young Australian of the Year.
Dr Nour, who also featured in the July 2021 issue of North Shore Living, was recognised for his establishment of Street Side Medics.
The service provides medical treatment to Sydney’s homeless community via ‘mobile medical centres’ – vans that are custom-fitted with the necessary equipment to provide primary healthcare.
The service now boasts 250 volunteers and has treated more than 300 patients to date.
Upon accepting his award, Dr Nour said:
“As Australians, it’s our responsibility to advocate for those who seem to have lost their voice and to rise up to the occasion, even when we question our own ability to do so.”
