Dr Mardi Steere has had a long and fascinating career as a doctor, both in Australia and overseas - but she returned some 5 years ago to her hometown of Adelaide, and joined the Royal Flying Doctor Service, where she now plays a vital role in the delivery of both our emergency medical and our primary health care services in South Australia and Northern Territory.

In this interview Mardi talks about how she came to be a doctor, her adventures (many) overseas, and her work today in caring for those in rural and remote areas.
