It takes a village to design and create healthcare products and services. At Drop Bio Health we are fortunate to work with world-class leaders to help shape the future of at-home healthcare and today we are excited to announce the appointment of four highly experienced clinicians to our GP Council.
These General Practitioners join us from regional and metropolitan areas across Australia and play a pivotal role in informing product developments including how Drop Bio Health members can best engage with their GP.
“GP’s are essential to healthcare and it’s a privilege to formally welcome Dr Luke Morphett, Dr Amandeep Hansra, Dr Kathleen Holcombe and Dr Kevin Cheng to the team. Their knowledge, humour, sleeves rolled-up approach and entrepreneurialism are so important to moving healthcare forward”, said Phil Hayes-St Clair, Drop Bio Health’s Co-Founder and CEO.
They join Dr Ginni Mansberg, Dr Nic Giummarra and our Medical Director, Dr Densearn Seo, in our mission to accelerate the world’s transition to personalised, preventative health.
Please join us in welcoming Dr Luke Morphett, Dr Amandeep Hansra, Dr Kathleen Holcombe and Dr Kevin Cheng!
