Dr Menon was also a ‘keynote speaker” at the Inaugural Conference of the Rural Medical Doctors of Australia, the North Queensland Biennial Medical Conference and the North Queensland Chamber of Commerce.
Just out of interest Dr Menon, while he was still a medical student, was a Co-Director of the “Festival of Asia”. This now defunct week-long programme involved functions at the Sydney Town Hall and the Conservatorium, under the patronage of the then Governor of NSW, Sir Roden Cutler. This was a great experience for a student.
