Secretary – Elodie Honore
- ROUNDS Rural Health Club
- Medical student
- University of Notre Dame, Sydney
Elodie grew up travelling between her family’s large farming community of South Gippsland, Victoria and Melbourne, allowing her benefits of both worlds of rural and metropolitan Australia. While loving the open Australian landscapes, hard work of the cattle yards and the freshest food from the farms, she also saw the inequities experienced there. In contrast to the resources, conveniences and services available to metropolitan Melbourne, she saw that rural Australia has a long way to go, igniting her commitment to rural health. Elodie has been Co-Chair of ROUNDS Rural Health Club, lead various other student societies and worked with refugee and community groups teaching vital water safety around the unique Australian waterways. Elodie will be enjoying her final year of medical school in Ballarat, Victoria.
“NRHSN Secretary is not just an administrative role. While organising meetings, writing minutes and attending to emails is an important part of the role, you really make your mark through NRHSN website management, newsletter creation and working on position papers. Regular national stakeholder engagement and support for Rural Health Clubs around Australia becomes your norm, benefiting our members and Rural Australia along with your own professional development. And yes, you do get used to all the acronyms…eventually.”
