Re­spect to Molly

Woman’s Day (Australia) - - Letters -

What a delight to read about bush doc­tor Molly Short­house ( WD, Oc­to­ber 16) and her pas­sion for and spe­cial con­nec­tion with the Indige­nous peo­ple of the out­back, es­pe­cially the Yol­ngu. Molly has not only shown great com­pas­sion and skill help­ing folk in these re­mote and harsh parts of the coun­try, but learned to un­der­stand their ex­tra­or­di­nary cul­ture. One can only hope Molly’s in­valu­able ex­pe­ri­ence will help teach and in­spire other doc­tors and med­i­cal teams ea­ger to fol­low in her re­mark­able foot­steps. Judith Caine, Don­vale, Vic
