Event Details

We are thrilled to announce that Professor Alex Brown will deliver this year’s John Chalmers Oration during Flinders Health Research Week.

An Aboriginal medical doctor and researcher, Alex first managed the local Centre for Disease Control in Alice Springs, controlling outbreaks of disease, immunisation programs and the surveillance of disease, before starting in research for the Menzies School of Health Research.

In 2007 he was appointed to set up a research program in Central Australia with Baker IDI Heart and Diabetes Institute, focusing on heart disease and diabetes in Aboriginal people. During this time, Alex completed his PhD on depression and heart disease in Aboriginal men.
