I am interested in preventing and alleviating suffering in the sickest, poorest, and most vulnerable people through health promotion, protection, and research.
Apart from my final oral exam, I have completed all my training time and assessments in Public Health Medicine by the Australian Faculty of Public Health Medicine.
My social research for vulnerable groups is in the areas of Aboriginal health, mental health, addictions, crime, cancer, heart disease, smoking cessation, communicable diseases, health and well-being, sexual health, HIV, aged care and for children with disability.
