Active Locums and Creative Doctors: A perfect match!

I asked our event sponsor, Judith Babich of Active Locums Pty Ltd, to tell us a little about her agency and its involvement with Creative Doctors:

Judith Babich
"Over the years, Active Locums Pty Ltd have had an interesting and eclectic mix of talented doctors registered and working through our agency who have also had careers outside of medicine. These included an actor, an opera singer, a number of aspiring writers and some classically trained musicians and dancers.Creative Doctors is a group that aims to nurture creativity in doctors and encourage a healthy work-life balance, something that is also strongly encouraged by Judith Babich, the Director of Active Locums Pty Ltd. The relationship between Active Locums and Creative Doctors began when we realised that some of our doctors had these extraordinary creative talents and the relationship has blossomed ever since.
