Ysanne present for birthing kits and birth of new hospital board
Published on 26 September, 2012
Dean of Nursing and Midwifery Professor Ysanne Chapman has literally sprung into Spring, with major initiatives in Mackay.
She recently took part in a successful Zonta Birthing Kits Assembly Day initiative organised by the Zonta Club of Mackay.
Birthing kits have the basic requirements for a clean and safe birth, including a sheet, soap, gloves, cords, scalpel and gauze squares, contained in a press-seal bag. They are light, small, water resistant and simple to use, helping to benefit women in developing countries.
Meantime, Professor Chapman has been welcomed to join Mackay's new Hospital and Health Service Board.
She's on the board with other experienced members: Dr Helen Archibald, Laura Veal, Darryl Camilleri, David Aprile, Tom McMillan and Professor Richard Murray, under the chairmanship of Col Meng.
Mr Meng commented that the board has the right mix of skills to shape the future of health in the Mackay region.
