Our Board and Executive Team

Chair | Townsville
“Australia needs farmers. We need rural and remote communities and I have a passion for assisting in the impacts of retention of all health professionals in the regions.”

To our people, it’s personal

Our team consists of people who care deeply about remote and rural communities. People who don’t just talk the talk but walk the walk. They’re out there, on the ground, connected to and part of regional communities. Every day they see the challenges faced in health care in isolated areas. And they are inspired to provide real solutions to make a difference.

Our Board Chair is Dr Michael Rice – a rural health practitioner based in Beaudesert, Queensland.

Michael is supported by a a diverse bunch of practising rural doctors and business professionals who bring their skills in rural medicine, business, law, finance, marketing and fundraising to build a Foundation that is focused on caring for the people who live in our rural and remote communities.

Despite their different backgrounds, they have one thing in common – a passion and commitment to improving rural health.

Our practising GPs face the challenges of living in rural and remote communities every day. They see first hand the impact of inequitable access to health care. Our non-medical directors have experienced the challenges of rural health, either in their childhood or through their careers.
