Project Description

Dr Rebecca Liackman

Researcher, PhD

Rebecca who is originally from the UK and has a background as a paediatric doctor brings a warm and vibrant energy to the SMS4dads team. With 4 vigorous children of her own she brings a wealth of knowledge of parenting and is a great resource for many common family issues. Bec has developed a strong interest in adolescent health as her own children grow older and she is familiar with the many contemporary challenges our young folk face. It’s a different world, right? This perspective aligns well with our focus on new fathers as society shifts from the traditional roles dads played into gender equitable and father-inclusive family practices. Bec is in her last semester of a Masters in Public Health and plans to continue promoting robust, sustainable lifestyle factors that are benevolent to the planet and all its people.
