Our story

The health of people relies on the health of our planet! DEA is a national non-profit organisation of doctors and medical students working to protect human health through care for the environment. DEA UQ is all about empowering medical students to become environmental advocates now and in their future medical careers. We host a variety of events, ranging from hands-on workshops about sustainability in the medical system, to conservation trips to Moreton Island where we plant trees and star-gaze on the beach. We also raise our voices as future medical professionals and take part in environmental activism such as the School Strike 4 Climate and our ongoing collaboration with the #StopAdani movement! On our Facebook page you can find our upcoming events, and posts about environmental research topical events that are relevant to our field. Whether you’re a current or future environmental advocate- we can’t wait to meet you!
