Magdalena Appointment

Dear AFMW Friends and members

I am very happy to announce that I have been appointed Clinical Associate Professor at the Department of General Practice University of Melbourne. I will be working alongside Professor Kelsey Hegarty in the Safer Families Centre of Research Excellence.

The Centre of Excellence is funded by the National Health and Medical Research Council and is are a partnership between the University of Melbourne, Murdoch Childrens’ Research Institute, La Trobe University and South Australia Health and Medical Research Institute.

The Centre of Research Excellence seeks to promote Safer Families (Safer Families Centre) and is the first dedicated Centre to lead research into the health effects of domestic violence and abuse and the health sector policy and practice responses needed to improve the safety, health and well-being of women, children and young people. This is a national and international collaboration comprising researchers, survivors, policy-makers, practitioners, and health, family, community and women’s services. I am proud to be part of the team which brings together researchers, investigators and scholars from all over the world with expertise in epidemiology, general practice, social work, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health, social and health policy, paediatrics, psychiatry, social science, psychology and biostatistics.

Of course, I will be in clinical GP practice too, as always.

Kindest regards,
