New staff and students in 2020
Indigenous Administration Officer Dannielle ‘Prinny’ Smith, Program Support Officer Tegan Roberts, Project Officer Cheryl ‘Possum’ Swinton
The year got off to a good start for the North West Academic Centre, with the arrival of three new staff members and one returning.
They are Cheryl ‘Possum’ Swinton (Project Officer), Dannielle ‘Prinny’ Smith (Indigenous Administration Officer), Tegan Roberts (Program Support Officer) and Charlene Noye (Allied Health Academic) from maternity leave. While I welcome them, it is also important to remember previous staff and the contributions they made to the Centre.
Currently, there are Bachelor of Oral Health students based in Bourke and Brewarrina. They are doing a community oral health needs assessment. There are nursing students who have travelled from Launceston, Tasmania to enjoy the Bourke experience for 6 weeks as well as a social work student in Brewarrina working on an integrated kidney health project. There are dietetic students working with community health staff on a gestational diabetes project, and a social work student has joined the crew at Birrang for 12 weeks.
