Hannah has been working as a Social Worker for the past decade across a range of settings including NSW Health, Public Guardian of NSW and in the community sector. She is a proud member of the LGBTIQ+ community and is dedicated to improving the health outcomes of all LGBTIQ+ people. Hannah believes that patient-centered palliative care must include an understanding of diversity and intersectionality. Hannah is currently coordinating a National Palliative care project with LGBTIQ+ Health Australia, funded by the Department of Health.
