Georgia is a trainee paediatric doctor whose commitment to child health is galvanised by having witnessed the interplay of poverty, infectious disease and childhood illness both in Australian Indigenous communities and abroad. She holds an MBBS and Bachelor of Arts from the University of Western Australia, where she graduated as Dux of the College of Medicine in 2015 and completed a Diploma of Child Health at the University of Sydney. She currently works at the Royal Children's Hospital in Melbourne. In 2019, Georgia will use her Masters education to build skills in research methodology, public health and policy, and clinical management of childhood infections. She will then go on to work as a Research Clinician in The Gambia, West Africa, to identify strategies for preventing neonatal mortality in under-resourced settings. On completion of her training Georgia intends to practice as a paediatrician in Australia's Northern Territory, and to act as a public health advocate to help to drive change in the underlying social determinants of poor Indigenous child health.
