About the Event
Suresh Marcandan was born in Sir Lianka where he had his primary education, before moving to the United Kingdon to continue his studies. He is an alumnus of the world reputed College of Maritime Studies in Southampton from where he graduated as a Master Mariner, before serving for many years as a Master (Captain) aboard large container vessels and bulk carriers owned by the famous Danish shipping line - Maersk Line.
He joined the Rotary Club of Melbourne in 2019.
Australian Rotary Health is one of the largest independent funders of mental health research within Australia.
Australian Rotary Health provides funding towards research grants, fellowships and PhD scholarships focused on finding preventative and curative solutions for mental illness in young Australians. From 2022, our funding focus will narrow to the mental health of children aged 0-12.
We also provide funding into a broad range of general health areas, provide scholarships for rural medical and nursing students, as well as Indigenous health students. Australian Rotary Health provides funding into areas of health that do not readily attract funding, and promotes findings to the community.
Australian Rotary Health is a project of the Rotary Districts of Australia and is supported by Rotary Clubs. We have a broad vision to improve the health and wellbeing of all Australians.
