Maggie Grant

 Maggie Grant Memorial Fund

Maggie Grant was a foundation member of the, then, Department of Public Health and Tropical Medicine at James Cook University from 1993 and of the School of Medicine (later College of Medicine and Dentistry) from 1999 until her untimely death on April 9 2015. Before JCU, Maggie spent a decade in the Kimberley region of Western Australia where as a nurse-midwife and educator, she played a key role in developing Aboriginal community controlled health services with her husband Ian Wronski and in establishing Aboriginal Health Worker education and training.

Maggie shaped much that is important and distinctive about the medical course at JCU, particularly around rural, remote, Indigenous and tropical health. With wisdom, humility and humour, she stood strong for social justice, inclusivity and intelligent engagement on challenging social issues. Maggie had an abiding commitment to improving Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health and to promoting understanding, pluralism and tolerance in in society. She led the foundation of the Stand Together Against Racism (STAR) initiative. Relied upon by all for her wise counsel, she was committed to her students and to addressing the priority needs of communities of the north.

A memorial fund in honour of Maggie Grant's life and work has been established to benefit students and to further the values that she exemplified. Donations can be made via the fund website or directly into envelopes that will be provided at the memorial. All donations over $2.00 are tax-deductible and a receipt will be issued.

Thank you for your support.
