The frequently reported and persistent gender gap is not limited to Australia’s top companies and board rooms—we still have a long way to go in the health sector, particularly in medical specialisations such as cardiology.
The Medical Research Future Fund (MRFF) Keeping Australians Out of Hospital grant opportunity will support research into evidence-based, implementable and scalable preventive health measures that aim to prevent the development, or promote better management of complex and chronic health conditions, improve quality of life for people with these conditions and keep them out of hospital.
What Is Happening?
· The shuttle bus to the Browns Road South car park will start its Afternoon run late on Thursday December 13.
· Normal service start time will resume from Friday December 14.
How Will This Impact Me?
- Staff who park in the Browns Road South car park will need to walk to and from MMC until the bus commences service from 4:30pm on Thursday December 13.
What About Safety?
· Take appropriate precautions when walking on public footpaths and roadways, looking to ensure driveways and roads are clear before crossing.
· Cross any roads at an appropriate location where you will have a good view of oncoming traffic from all directions.
· Refrain from using any portable audio technology (mobile phone, music player etc.) which may distract you from hearing traffic whilst you are crossing roads or driveways.
