Sad loss of GP advocate

Many in the AMA and across the medical profession were saddened last month with the passing of popular and highly respected GP, general practice advocate, writer, and editor, Dr Kerri Parnell, following a battle with breast cancer.

Working as a GP in Sydney, Kerri found herself recruited to the world of medical publishing, where she quickly became a passionate and informed champion for her colleagues in general practice.

She spent many years with Australian Doctor, before moving in recent years to The Medical Republic.

When I joined the AMA, Kerri became a friend and confidant, helping me understand the mysteries of the general practice world.

Kerri was a friend and colleague of many at the AMA, including Federal and State Presidents, Chairs of the AMACGP, and grassroots members.

Her editorials and articles gave voice to the ideas, concerns, pressures, and experiences of hardworking local GPs across the country. She helped give GPs political clout.

Kerri was a mentor to many young journalists who started or built their careers in medical publishing.

A great conversationalist and networker, and a talented and colourful writer and editor, Dr Kerri Parnell will be sorely missed.
