Who is Dinesh Palipana, QLD Australian of the year?

Dinesh Palipana is doctor, lawyer and disability advocate.

He became QLD Australian of the year in 2021, and was the first person with a spinal cord injury to graduate from medicine in Queensland.

Dinesh talks to us about his ‘personal why’ and how it has supported him to thrive in a career he loves despite initial well-meaning but misplaced concerns from people around him at the time of his recovery.
