Each month we’re featuring a member of the Hepatitis Queensland team so you can get to know us. This month we’d like to introduce Pam Muir, President of the Hepatitis Queensland Board.
How long have you been with Hepatitis Queensland?
I’ve been a Board member since September 2014.
What do you enjoy most about being involved with Hepatitis Queensland?
What I enjoy most is being able to support our creative, dynamic staff. I never tire of hearing about the number of people HQ has helped get tested, or access to treatment, or learn about viral hepatitis and liver health. I also love working with my fellow Board members!
Do you have a particular highlight you’d like to mention?
Hmmm, there are quite a few. I was particularly delighted that HQ’s work on hepatitis B in FNQ and Torres Strait led to expanded focus (e.g. funding) on hepatitis B in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities.
What do you like to do when you’re not working?
Well, since giving up aerial skiing and high-wire acrobatics *grin*, I like to write, learn new things about the world and challenge myself to do things I never thought I could do. Recently, that included deadlifting 70kgs at the gym!
What three words best describe you?
Soft-spoken, caring, gentle.
Who inspires you?
This may sound strange as I’m originally from the USA, Queen Elizabeth II.
If you were stuck on an island, what three things would you bring?
My kindle, my puppy and a photo of my two adult sons.
