In June 2015 the local doctors from the Kirakira Hospital (Dr Arnold Nguduamae & Dr Grace Rara) were able to attend and speak at a medical conference in Fiji. The conference was jointly hosted by the Gold Coast Medical Association (GCMA) and the Fiji College of General Practitioners. Drs Nguduamae and Rara discussed diabetes in Kirakira and were able to attend the other sessions on offer. This educational opportunity also afforded Arnold and Grace the opportunity to reconnect with colleagues and instructors known to them through the Fiji School of Medicine.
