Dr Alice Rumbold
The University of Adelaide & Menzies School of Health Research – South Australian Young Tall Poppy of the Year 2009
Alice investigates the causes and consequences of women’s reproductive health problems. Recently her research has been directed to improving outcomes for Aboriginal women, by studying the occurrence and impact of common infections such as Human Papillomavirus (HPV) that can cause women’s reproductive cancers, and by looking at ways to provide the most appropriate care in pregnancy for Aboriginal women.
Her work is actively informing health programs to optimise the health of young Aboriginal women now and in the future.
