Illumine—Grammar Women

Dr Wendy Page

Of the many university students that graduate in medicine each year, few dedicate their lives to working in remote and underserviced communities—committing time and resources to studying less well-known tropical illnesses and working to ensure that ‘community health’, really does include ‘working together’ with the people from that community. 

In this episode of Illumine—Grammar Women, Principal, Ms Jacinda Euler, speaks with alumnae, Dr Wendy Page (1972), who has worked as a General Practitioner for more than 30 years, specialising in tropical diseases and focusing her work in remote First Nations communities in north-east Arnhem Land. Dr Page was recognised for her contributions in 2021 when she was named the Northern Territory Recipient for Australian of the Year.
