Description

The University of Newcastle is proud to present its new professors through a dynamic public lecture series, 'New Professors Talk'.  This series introduces you to the new people in our community and shares the knowledge and expertise of these leading commentators and thinkers.

Join us to welcome Professor Nicky Hudson when she presents the next talk, 'Healthcare access for rural communities:  everyone's business'.

Research shows rural Australians experience poorer health than those in metropolitan areas due to their living conditions, social isolation, socioeconomic disadvantage and distance from health services. These Australians need and deserve better access to health care. 

Meeting this care challenge is the focus of research at the University of Newcastle, Department of Rural Health, under the leadership of its Director, Professor Nicky Hudson.

In this talk she will share how community-based health education in NSW can bring together government, industry, universities, community organisations, clinicians and patients themselves, to recruit the right health workforce for their community. 

Professor Hudson has worked as a GP in indigenous, remote and urban health.  She has extensive national and international experience in medical education including senior academic roles in physiology and clinical education, assessment and community-based health education in Australia and the UK.
