Biography

Kathy Currie is a practicing audiologist and Hearing Health Program Leader at the NT Department of Health.

Kathy has lived and worked in the NT for over 16 years. During this period she has worked on a range of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander ear and hearing health programs and provided clinical, advocacy, policy, strategy and project management services. Throughout her work in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander ear and hearing health, Kathy has been employed by the Australian Government, the Aboriginal community controlled sector and the NT Government.

As part of the follow-up ear, nose and throat (ENT) and hearing projects for the NT Emergency Response (NTER) Child Health Check Initiative, Kathy developed strategic initiatives and care models.

In 2014, Kathy was one of two recipients of the Chief Minister’s Public Sector Medal, recognising her contributions to the development of an integrated hearing service across Aboriginal communities in the NT. The Hearing Health program has reduced moderate hearing loss from 23% to 9% in Aboriginal children screened between 2007 and 2013. Kathy also provides advice to a range of national working groups.
