Hope Gates-Scovelle is a doctor specialising in Emergency Medicine at St Vincent’s Hospital, Melbourne. Completing Neuroscience and Physiology degrees with multiple awards, and graduating from Medicine with honours, Hope remains passionate about health education. This passion ignited while working in desperately poor districts of Cambodia where the impact of education on community health outcomes was acutely apparent. Prior to Medicine, Hope studied visual arts, working as a set designer and exhibiting paintings both nationally and internationally. Drawing on this background, she sees visual media as a tool for communicating health information in a manner that transcends cultural and language barriers.
