Meet our speakers:
Professor Deborah Loxton is Co-Director for the Research Centre for Women's Health (formally Research Centre for Generational Health and Ageing) at The University of Newcastle and HMRI. She is also Deputy Director of the Australian Longitudinal Study on Women's Health. Professor Loxton is a prolific researcher, an expert in the impacts of violent relationships on women, as well as different aspects of reproductive health.
Dr Nicole Nathan has more than 15 years' experience as a Health Promotion Manager for Hunter New England Population Health. She specialises in implementation science in health policy. Having worked across multiple Hunter New England (HNE) health programs and projects, she knows just how policy workers and researchers can ensure that they don’t fall short on making real and measurable changes within the community. She is currently studying the impact of school uniforms on female participation in physical activity in school. Emmalee Ford recently completed her PhD with The University of Newcastle where she looked at the underlying mechanism of eggs grow and are lost to provide new directions for diagnosing people at risk of early fertility loss. Throughout her PhD, Emmalee also focused on what the public knows about fertility, including the study of reproductive health apps that feature apps that track menstrual cycles. She believes that apps have an important role to play in understanding fertility, but there is much more work to be done.
