Port Stephens is lucky to have a special Friendship Group.

Members of The Port Stephens Friendship Group visited the Victor Chang Cardiac Institute in Darlinghurst Sydney for a tour of their research unit dedicated to the prevention and treatment of cardiovascular disease.

The institute was founded in 1994 in memory of pioneering surgeon Dr Victor Chang and has been responsible for reducing the mortality rate from cardiac disease by 76%.

The tour was conducted by Research Scientist, Professor Diane Fatkin.

The tour took the members through the laboratory and research areas of this world class facility explaining some of the discoveries into diagnostic, prevention and treatment of heart disease.

At the conclusion of this interesting and informative tour, members of the Friendship Group enjoyed lunch at the Cruising Yacht Club at Rushcutters Bay before heading home again with Port Stephens Coaches.

Fran Wathen a member of The Port Stephens Friendship Group told News Of the Area, “The Port Stephens Friendship Group welcomes new members and meets on the last Tuesday of each month at Nelson Bay Diggers Club commencing at 5.00pm.”
