Committee F’s inaugural meeting will be taking place next week with Prof Annette Braunack-Mayer as the newly appointed Chair.
Annette is a Professor of Health Ethics in the School of Public Health at the University of Adelaide and she was the Head of School until October last year. Her area of research is public health ethics and policy, with a particular focus on vaccination, obesity and chronic disease prevention. She has for many years been an ethicist in a medical setting and she also chairs the Ethics Health Advisory Council for the South Australian Department of Health and Ageing and sits on their HREC. Her mix of expertise in the clinical setting, population health and qualitative methods is a great addition to the Chair team. Annette has worked with agencies supporting both PBAC and MSAC, so has a deep understanding of the lifecycle of the clinical work.
We are delighted to welcome Annette to the Bellberry team.
