Dr Terence J Luscombe
(MBBS Dip OBS RACOG)
Terry has recently retired from general practice and obstetrics and now works part time in geriatric medicine. He resides in Victoria where he has run a successful practice for 35 years. He has served on the board of the community health centre and has had several terms as chairperson and secretary of the Castlemaine medical group.
Educated at De La Salle college Malvern and Monash University, he graduated with a degree in medicine in 1978 and obtained a diploma of obstetrics and gynaecology in 1982. He and his wife Anne (a passionate and accomplished educator) settled in Castlemaine and raised a family there. For over 25 years, he has been fundraising for both local and overseas charities.
Two years ago, he participated in a fundraising bike ride for an organisation in Siem Reap. There he met Emily Williamson, the founder of REACH. He was impressed by the teams exceptional work and the value they were adding to the lives of their students and their families, he was equally appalled by the poverty of the Siem Reap slums. He considers REACH a deserving charity and sees his future role to be continuing with fundraising and raising awareness among Australian communities for this REACH Siem Reap.
