HCA members feature in the The AFR and Westpac 100 Women of Influence for 2015

Harvard Club of Australia members Anna Shepherd (more below) and Elizabeth Constable, Vice-Chancellor's Fellow, Office of the Vice-Chancellor at The University of Western Australia have been recognised in The Australian Financial Review and Westpac 100 Women of Influence for 2015.

Anna Shepherd, CEO of Regal Home Health and Adjunct Associate Professor at The University of Sydney Nursing School, has been announced as a winner in The Australian Financial Review and Westpac 100 Women of Influence for 2015. Anna has been recognised in the Business Enterprise category.

“I strongly believe that clinical healthcare in the home is a progressive response to our changing 21st century health needs, and I’m committed to ensuring that multidisciplinary home healthcare and Community Nurses continue to have a voice and are recognised for the sustainable quality outcomes achieved within our health system.

Anna is inspired by many global leaders, past and present. Maya Angelou once said that “people will never forget how you made them feel,” and this message underpins Anna’s belief in the importance of community and her commitment to social inclusion:

“In the spirit of the Irish word ‘Metheal’ and the African word ‘Ubuntu,’ I believe that community is where people thrive, heal, love and experience real joy. My mission is to shine a light on the critical role community can play, and to expose the many contributions people with diverse backgrounds make in healing and supporting one another within the community.”
