Jannah joined The George Institute for Global Health in 2017. She is passionate about improving health outcomes for the community in Australia and internationally.

Jannah holds a PhD in Statistics focussing on Bayesian spatiotemporal modelling of chronic disease outcomes. She has completed a Postdoctoral Fellowship in Health Policy in conjunction with NSW Health and has experience working in the Cancer Clinical Trials field. 

Jannah has a clinical background, holding a Bachelors in Medicine and Surgery and two postgraduate diplomas in Public Health and Statistics. Many years of first-hand experience treating patients has led to a compassionate appreciation of the struggles that people go through when they are ill. Illness affects every aspect of one’s life and it is important to do all we can to prevent illness before it strikes.

Thus the mission of The George Institute for Global Health is well in line with Jannah’s personal goals. Through her continuing work on several international projects, she hopes to improve overall health and access to healthcare and prevent illness for people around the world.
