Rosalind Beadle is a PhD Candidate in the School of Population Health at the University of Melbourne. In the ten years since completing a Bachelor of Arts in Development Studies, she has gained extensive experience in Public Health and Community Development, primarily in Aboriginal communities in Western Australia and the Northern Territory, but also in Tonga as a Youth Ambassador. To complement the professional roles she has held in both Government and non-Government organisations, her PhD is focused on researching meaningful ways of engaging remote Aboriginal women in programs and services using a developmental approach. This study is based on the experience of a group of Ngaanyatjarra women (the Warburton Breakfast Minyma) who she has worked alongside since 2009.
