She will be placed in the Tasmanian Department of Health, Hobart for the duration of her study, where she also works as a Public Health Medicine Advanced Trainee.
Hayley completed her Master of Public Health, majoring in Disaster Health and Humanitarian Assistance, via James Cook University in Cairns between 2018 and 2019. In this time, she commenced a research project into termination of pregnancy in Cairns, which she endeavours to complete in 2021.
