The changing face of medicine
We hear from four medical researchers on the way COVID-19 has affected public health and the future of medicine.
From Arnhem Land to Antarctica
Dr Rhys Harding relishes a challenge. The UOW alumnus has spent the past eight years carving out a career as a doctor in some of the most remote locations in the world. That has meant different things at different points in his life. As a medical student, he spent a year in Broken Hill, becoming exposed to the daily rhythm of practising medicine in the outback New South Wales rural community.
Finding a pathway to success
When Associate Professor Dr Martina Sanderson-Smith joined UOW as a young science student, she wasn’t clear of the path ahead. But that certainly did not impact her rise through her field to esteemed Senior Research Fellow in the School of Chemistry and Molecular Bioscience, Molecular Horizons.
Imprisoned in body and mind
While the COVID-19 pandemic has seen many Australians experience separation and isolation over the past year, it has added an extra layer of despair to the lives of those behind bars, who have had little or no face-to-face contact with loved ones.
Making an impact
UOW alumni across the globe are making it their personal mission to tackle some of the world’s most prevalent environmental and societal issues, one United Nations Sustainable Development Goal at a time.
