Petra Quinlan – Turner

Petra studied medicine in Germany and completed her GP training (including qualifications in women’s and reproductive health) in the UK, before moving to Australia. She completed a Master of Public Health at the University of Melbourne, where she focused on social and participatory research, having learned during her clinical work, how important it is to consider patients’ backgrounds, experiences and beliefs when providing health care. Petra is motivated to strive for social justice, equity, and equitable health care in general. She is delighted to now continue the work she started with PPV Inc.  during her public health research project as committee member, supporting PPV members in gaining access to adequate disability services.
