Harry Medlin Rooms, Union House, The University of Adelaide North Terrace, Adelaide

Staff and students are invited to hear the story of 2019 Australian of the Year dual recipient Dr Richard 'Harry' Harris SC OAM. A question and answer session will follow.

In July 2018, Adelaide anaesthetist Dr Richard Harris made worldwide headlines when he joined an international team to rescue a group of 12 boys and their soccer coach from a flooded cave in Chiang Rai, Thailand. He risked his life swimming through the narrow cave system to assist with the rescue, giving the all-clear for them to be evacuated.
