My Health Record is an online database of Australians' medical data. It will enable healthcare providers to access your medical data. You can opt out from My Health Record between 16 July to 15 October.

Is it dangerous to allow the government to collect such a large amount of medical data on every Australian resident? Could it save your life?

I will present an argument for opting out, and I will present an argument not to opt out. You can decide what is right for you.

Directions: You can get to the Workshop from the city by catching the #57 tram, which runs along Elizabeth St, and starts at Flinders St.

The venue: The Electron Workshop has bean bags and a great cozy area for the discussion.

Feel free to arrive a bit early if you'd like to chat. I will be at the venue at 5:45pm to set up. We'll start shortly after 6pm.

No cost. Thank you to The Electron Workshop for hosting us!
