Michael Andrews —

From reducing the maternal mortality rate of Ugandan mothers to teaching Australian children first aid in schools, and now implementing telehealth in the Solomon Islands – I've been privileged to travel the world while fostering resilience in the communities I've visitied.

I’m currently researching and developing health services in the Pacific Islands, combining my clinical knowledge with my love of technology to develop solutions to solve some of the most pressing threats to health.

I was honoured to be announced as one of the most influential changemakers within the social sector as a winner of Pro Bono Australia’s IMPACT 25 Awards.

As part of the Queensland Government’s response to COVID-19, I've returned to a clinical role within the Queensland Ambulance Service as an Advanced Care Paramedic on the Sunshine Coast.
