Kim is a Health Economist leading a program of research in child health in the Health Economics Unit in the Centre for Health Policy at The University of Melbourne. Kim is also leading the economic evaluation component of the Centre for Research Excellence in Childhood Adversity and Mental Health.
Dame Kate Campbell was the first female to be appointed as an honorary pediatrician at the Royal Women's Hospital, Melbourne in 1924. With her research significantly contributing to improving the care of premature babies in the NICU, Kim identified with the fellowship’s namesake immediately when reflecting on her award, saying “The Dame Kate Campbell Fellowship is a great honor and important validation of my work. I will use the fellowship to continue to build capacity in child health economics and to further methods work in long term outcomes and economic impacts of prematurity. Dame Kate Campbell is a great inspiration in her pioneering work in the area of neonatal medicine and her achievements in the face of discrimination. I hope to make great use of this fellowship in her name and the opportunity afforded me.”
Everyone in the Centre congratulates Kim on this outstanding recognition of her work.
