Australia

I intend to pursue my interest in international child health and nutrition, probably with a focus on policy.

What are your career goals?

I hope to combine clinical paediatric medicine with public health in a way that enables me to keep in touch with the coal-face of health care while also working to address the bigger picture issues.  I have a passion for Indigenous health in Australia, and would love to contribute to this area, and also intend to live and work in Afghanistan for some time where my wife and I have close family ties.

How do you see yourself making a difference in public health because of the Global Health Scholarship?

The Johns Hopkins Center for Global Health global health scholarship will enable me to gain the public health knowledge and experience to step from helping individuals on a clinical level, to working with whole communities on the public health level.  I expect to use these skills to contribute to child health in Afghanistan, as well as in Australia's two most disadvantaged populations - Indigenous Australians, and refugee/asylum seekers.  The global health scholarship will also assist me in determining my own professional career pathway through the mentoring and advice of global health leaders.

Who inspires you and why?

Albert Schweitzer, has such and strong and deep understanding of life, the world and himself, expressed beautiful in his 'reverence for life' philosophy.  Yet he was also immensely practical, and left a lasting legacy living and working as a medical doctor in Lambarene, west Africa.  Fred Hollows, an Australian ophthalmologist, who confronted the gross health inequalities both among Indigenous Australians and communities abroad in his unique and outspoken way.
