I have always had a passion for the environment and animals and since starting medicine I have realised how big of an impact climate change is having on human health. I joined Doctors for the Environment Australia in 2015 and have since been a UNSW representative where I have been involved in organising small documentary screenings and university climate change actions. DEA is a nation-wide organisation run by doctors and medical students with the primary goal of protecting the environment to decrease the effect on human health and animal health.
I am currently a co-convener for the iDEA18 conference which relies heavily on a team that keeps regular communication and a clear plan. I am also the current national-rep elect and future national student representative for DEA which will involve overseeing and coordinating the National Student Committee.
