Description

International Women’s Day 2018 - #pressforprogress

Julie will share her incredible story which led to her starting her own health service chemo@home in 2013. She has won numerous awards for innovation and disruption in the health service sector. As a small business owner, Julie will share the lessons learnt along the way and the many successes that have emerged through persistence and not taking no for an answer.


We will be seeking to raise funds for AFA Foundation - Telethon Adventures as chosen by Julie Adams.

Meet our guest speaker Julie Adams

Julie Adams graduated from Curtin University in WA with a Bachelor of Pharmacy degree in 1986. She went on to complete her Post Graduate Diploma in Hospital Pharmacy in 1995, and in 1999 she successfully obtained Board Certification in Oncology Pharmacy (US). Julie has worked in the area of oncology and haematology for over 25 years, in a number of hospitals (both public and private) in Western Australia. In 2000 she obtained funding to initiate and develop a service which enabled oncology and haematology patients to receive their chemotherapy and supportive care therapy at home. Julie managed this service for 12 years. In 2013 she has started her own health service, chemo@home, which administers chemotherapy to cancer patients and immunotherapy to patients with chronic diseases such as multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis and Crohn’s disease. chemo@home has won numerous business awards for its innovation and disruption of the health service sector, with Julie being awarded the 2016 WA Telstra Entrepreneur and Business Woman of the Year. Julie co-ordinates the education program for the Society of Hospital Pharmacists of Australia, Committee of Specialty Practice in Cancer Services. She is also a passionate advocate of “conscious shopping” and environmentally sustainable housing, and built her own eco-house in 2007. When Julie is not managing chemo@home she can be found (or not found!) camping somewhere sunny and warm, near a beach.
