Sheila Handbury Chair of Maternal Fetal Medicine

The Sheila Handbury Chair of Maternal Fetal Medicine Fund supports the advancement of maternal fetal medicine advocacy and clinical practice.

The Sheila Handbury Chair of Maternal Fetal Medicine was created to build capacity, promote the development of collaborative partnerships and provide leadership in each of the domains of clinical excellence, teaching and training, and research.

Internationally recognised as a leader in maternal fetal medicine (MFM), Professor Sue Walker (MBBS (Hons) 1989, GDipEpid&Biostat 1998, PhD 2001) is the inaugural Sheila Handbury Chair of Maternal Fetal Medicine.

The Chair is named after Mr Geoff Handbury’s mother, who received care from the Sisters of Mercy many years ago. Geoff has been a great contributor to this cause, and the fully endowed position would not have been possible if not for the support of the Handbury family.
