A reception for Asthma WA

The Governor and Ms Annus hosted a special event in support of the Governor’s patronage – Asthma WA.

Asthma WA has been a important part of the WA health landscape for nearly 57 years, with today’s event a way to thank donors and supporters of the organisation’s Paediatric Respiratory Hub that was launched just over a year ago.

The Governor addressed guests, before hearing from the Hub’s Founding Respiratory Specialist Dr Stephen Oo and Asthma WA CEO Ms Donna Rendell.
