During her tenure Ms Whorlow has been integral in securing government funding for asthma, recently acquiring Government funding for the fifth National Asthma Strategy now in the final stages of the Australian Health Ministers’ Advisory Council (AHMAC) process.
Ms Whorlow will be replaced by the NAC’s current strategy and communications manager, Ms Siobhan Brophy.
Welcoming the appointment NAC Chairman, Dr Jonathan Burdon said:
“Siobhan bring outstanding skills, knowledge and experience to the role and The Board and I are delighted to welcome her as the new CEO. We look forward to working together with her.”
