Genetics in a nutshell? 🧬 We spent 5 minutes with Director of Genetic Health Professor Julie to chat about rare diseases in Australia this #RareDiseaseDay.

"A rare disease is one that affects less than five in 10,000 people, and approximately 80% of rare diseases are of genetic origin," she said.

"Those with rare diseases and their families can struggle to get the support they need without understanding the cause of the condition and can feel lost without a diagnosis. It's important to give them peace of mind.

"Our role in Genetic Health Queensland is to see patients and families, to clinically assess them and undertake genetic testing to provide a diagnosis. This empowers the families, enables them to plan for the future and we hope there will be an increasing number of treatments available to help lessen symptoms and improve quality of life." 🤗

As we prepare to deliver Metro North's first COVID-19 vaccines on Monday, we wanted to give a special #ShoutoutSaturday to the pharmacists working hard behind closed doors! Meet Anne-Marie, Jalpesh and Renee, some of the pharmacists who are responsible for ensuring the vials of the vaccine are compounded into individual doses for patients. 💉

"Compounding is the process of taking the vaccine from the vial it comes in and putting it into syringes in the correct dosage needed per person," team leader Anne-Marie said.

"We're looking to compound and administer up to 500 doses a day, six days a week. There's five of us in the team and on Monday, we'll be here three hours before the first vaccine to ensure the doses are properly prepared which is a crucial step in the vaccine process."

The team have been running time trials this week to make sure they're as efficient as possible when the vaccine rollout begins. With our team of pharmacists on the job, we're all in safe hands! 👐🏥

Welcome to the world, Evelyn! 🐣 On 24 Feb, little Evelyn was born to first time parents Emma and Sam at #RBWH who were thrilled to finally meet her.

"She weighed 9.89 lbs and was born at 2.02 am, but she certainly kept us waiting! Evelyn was due a day earlier and I had about a 16 hour labour," Emma said.

Join us in wishing Emma, Sam and Evelyn a safe trip home! #FeelgoodFriday 💕
