Sarah: In addition to my activities with Bridge8, I recently started a secondment as Media and Communications Officer at the Childrens Research Centre (CRC) in Adelaide. It’s a diverse centre, comprised of academic and clinical staff and students from the University of Adelaide Department of Paediatrics, the Children, Youth and Women’s Health Service and affiliates. Grouped into 6 research and clinical programs, the Children’s Research Centre provides a cross disciplinary approach in addressing common childhood conditions such as obesity, diabetes (Types I and II), abnormalities in bone growth, allergies and other immunological syndromes, respiratory and sleep disorders, gastrointestinal problems, neurological problems and mental health. Phew! I have quite a bit of reading to get across all that…but I’m really looking forward to working with the group – improving their website, assisting with various funding and academic applications and other communications needs. Keep your eyes and ears open for updates!
