Description

Naomi Mayers is a very determined woman. She has a generous laugh and a strong spirit which comes from her deep family ties to the old Cummeragunja mission. She's been the CEO of the Aboriginal Medical Service (AMS) in Sydney's Redfern for many years. One of the volunteer doctors in the mid 1970s was the current Deputy Premier of New South Wales, Dr Andrew Refshauge, who says admiringly, "She's an impressive woman who sees through people who talk bullshit!"
