7 January 2020 We are delighted to announce that the Tasmanian Minister for Health, the Hon Sarah Courtney MP, will be opening the Tasmanian Pharmacy Conference on Saturday 15th February 2020.
Sarah Courtney was elected to the Parliament of Tasmania in March 2014, representing the seat of Bass. After the 2018 election the Premier appointed Sarah to Cabinet where she serves as Minister for Health and Minister for Women. Sarah’s decision to nominate to represent her community was driven by a strong desire to use her skills to deliver a positive future for all Tasmanians. In her inaugural speech Sarah said: “I want to utilise my talents, experience and energy and help Tasmania realise its full potential… My vision for Tasmania is one that capitalises on the opportunity that surrounds us with a government that assists and supports those who innovate and invest… I want Tasmania to be a place that encourages individuals, communities and businesses to be the best they can, always striving for improvement and not settling for mediocrity”. Sarah is committed to working genuinely and cooperatively with constituents to achieve real and meaningful difference in their lives. Sarah firmly believes that better outcomes can be achieved for the whole community when stakeholders collaborate. Find out more about Sarah at: www.sarahcourtney.com.au
