Career Summary

Biography

Dr Kym Rae is an Early Career Researcher who completed her PhD studies at the University of New England in early 2007. Her PhD work looking at predicting the onset of labour in women provided a natural progression into her post-doctoral work aimed at reducing premature and low birth weight deliveries in Aboriginal communities. Dr Rae is committed to developing research in partnership with Aboriginal people and providing ongoing capacity building opportunities for early Aboriginal researchers.

Dr Kym Rae has been the Program Coordinator of the Gomeroi gaaynggal research program (NHMRC 569239) since the early phases of consultation with the Aboriginal communities of the Hunter New England Area Health Service. She has been heavily involved in community consultation and developed community connections in each of the project locations. Dr Rae continues to be in close communication with the Aboriginal communities of Tamworth and Walgett particularly. She has spent four years in community consultation with Aboriginal communities in the local and national arena.

Dr Rae is the program coordinator for both the Scientific research and ArtsHealth Gomeroi gaaynggal program. She has a personal interest in the capacity building of local Aboriginal people and has mentored the Aboriginal staff involved in the Gomeroi gaaynggal project to continue to build their research skills and return research capacity to local communities. She has personally mentored two Aboriginal women through to the successful completion of the Indigenous Research Capacity Building Cert IV.

Currently she is mentoring a beginning Indigenous Researcher from the University of Newcastle through the early stages of her project design and ethics applications. Despite the short time frame, she has published a number of conference and journal papers, and continues to increase her publication output. She continues to build her publications in Indigenous maternal and infant health, ArtsHealth and coordinate art exhibitions for the Gomeroi gaaynggal mothers.
