Emeritus Professor Robert Ouvrier has been a long standing friend and supporter of our CMTAA. Back in the early 90's when we were then known as the CMT Support Group, at our second public meeting, he gave a very informative talk about CMT at the Woodstock Community Centre in Burwood, NSW. We were all impressed at the time by his knowledge of CMT.
