Dame Sue Bagshaw
Sue works as a primary care doctor specialising in adolescent/youth health at a one stop community youth health centre for 10-25 year olds, which she helped to set up, under a trust called Korowai Youth Well-being Trust. She is working with others to set up a Youth Hub of services, creativity and transition housing.
She is a senior lecturer in adolescent health in the department of Paediatrics at the Christchurch School of Medicine, and she is an educator with the Collaborative Trust (a research and training centre for youth health and development, which she also helped to set up).
She worked for the Family Planning Association for 20 years and worked for ten years part time on the Methadone programme in Christchurch: which is why she has interests in common with young people – sex, drugs and rock ‘n roll!
Keynote Address - Adapt to change
Sue will address issues of managing change and overcoming adversity in the face of earthquakes, mass shootings, covid and the rest as it applies to her experience with youth services, and how we can all adapt to change.
