Profile stories

"In Australia, we are lucky to have one of the best health care systems in the world, but we still see major inequalities of health outcomes and access. I’m motivated by the idea that we can create a better system that is easier to navigate and uses resources more efficiently, so that more people can access services and the benefit will be improved health."

"I’m a physician, and I’m a medical researcher.  So each day I try to follow the advice of the late great Mohammed Ali: “float like a butterfly, sting like a bee”.  Maximise time with people and minimise time with screens.  And above all focus on the big picture tasks, the few that really matter."

"When it comes to Sepsis it’s hard to know where to start."

"Salt increases blood pressure, which increases the risk of cardiovascular disease – such as heart disease, heart attacks and stroke – the biggest killer worldwide. By reducing salt intakes, we can reduce the risk of such diseases, and save lives."

‘It is important to me to be a role model, an example of a strong resilient Aboriginal woman who can achieve anything she sets her mind to.’

"More and more, I think people are realising that this light-touch but personal-touch support can help people to change behaviours, which is fundamental to a lot of chronic health conditions these days."

"The opportunity to make a tangible difference to health outcomes, especially for people and communities that have inequitable access to health care, was the major driver for working at the George."

"PhD students are the future leaders in our field and it is a privilege to work with students over a three year period on a dedicated project."

"Excess salt consumption increases blood pressure which is a major risk factor for cardiovascular disease. Therefore we need strategies to reduce salt intake especially in populations at high risk of cardiovascular disease."
