From the hacking of Australia’s first digital Census, to Centrelink’s debt-recovery glitch debacle, the pursuit of functional e-government for Australians has clearly had its teething problems.
Bite-sized lectures for lifelong learning
With UNSW Sydney, learning doesn’t stop at graduation.
Learn@Lunch is a fast, easy-to-digest, one-hour session that offers alumni the exclusive opportunity to foster lifelong learning.
Dr Kate Dunn will share how an exciting new wave of 3D printing technologies and materials is spearheading a more accurate and human-centred design approach to healthcare.
Professor Ian Jacobs, President and Vice-Chancellor of UNSW, former women’s cancer surgeon and world-renowned ovarian cancer researcher, will share his insights into screening and prevention of cancers of the cervix and ovary. He will talk about his own 30 years of research devoted to early detection of ovarian cancer and his hopes for its final findings. His talk will also cover his women’s initiative in Uganda where poverty and the aftermath of civil war had relegated women’s health to the bottom of the list of priorities, allowing the preventable cancer of the cervix to take the lives of too many women.
