These programs are delivered to primary healthcare centres across the Northern Territory.  Anna’s current role also involves managing projects, as part of the Vision Cooperative Research Centre on Models of Vision Care Delivery in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Communities, which aims to understand current practices and systems for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander eye care service delivery and systems to improve eye care outcomes.

Anna graduated from the Queensland University of Technology (QUT) in 2004 with a Bachelor of Applied Science (Optometry) with first-class honours and the University Medal and subsequently completed a Masters of Public Health from the University of New South Wales. She previously spent four years working in optometry practices in Alice Springs, as well as with the outreach ophthalmology clinics in Central Australia and Barkley Region communities.
