We’re pleased to announce a winner for our Portugal and Spain Medical Conference  competition.

Dr Gregory Katsoulotos, a Sydney-based adult respiratory and sleep physician, wins our $23,000 package, which includes seven nights on board a luxury riverboat on the Douro River in northern Portugal, including all meals and drinks plus a 20-hour accredited medical education program.

Contacted by phone, Dr Katsoulotos said having recently been to America and also other parts of Europe, he’d actually been thinking about visiting somewhere on the Iberian peninsula.

“So the timing really is perfect!” he said.

Dr Katsoulotos has a PhD in asthma, immunology and allergy problems and has a keen interest in allergy and all forms of airways disease, including asthma and COPD. He has appointments at several hospitals in South Sydney and is a Senior Lecturer at the University of NSW. Dr Katsoulotos also helps run the undergraduate medical student teaching program at The Sutherland Hospital.

The conference organiser, Unconventional Conventions, is an accredited education provider for the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners. The conference will provide an opportunity for local professional contribution and cultural exchange through workshops and structured visits to local clinics. You can access the program here.
