HOT NORTH Annual Scientific Symposia Travel Award - Eleanor Woodward

I am thrilled for the opportunity to attend this year's HOT NORTH Annual Scientific Symposia, with the help of the AEA Travel Award. I am a Registered Medical Practitioner, taking this year out from clinical work to complete a Master of Public Health at the University of New South Wales. My passion lies in environmental, tropical and indigenous health, and my goal is to work across both the clinical and public health sectors in these domains. This symposia will be a fantastic opportunity for me to build on my knowledge of public health issues in the Northern Territory, and connect with people I hope to be working with in the coming years.
