[Extract] In January, about 300 students gathered at James Cook University in Townsville in north Queensland, for the National Australian Pharmacy Students' Association (NAPSA) conference.

Early in the morning for the final day of the conference the students gathered for the day's sessions. Grant Sarra took the microphone. 'We are privileged to be here today and to be able to see, hear, read and write. And we have been educated to a certain level - not everybody has this opportunity. We should never take these simple things in life for granted. 'We need to take the time to put ourselves into the shoes of others - those who may not be so privileged -to better understand, appreciate and respond to their needs.'
