ABOUT DR HELEN MARY MAYO

Helen Mary Mayo was an Australian medical doctor and medical educator, born and raised in Adelaide. In 1896, she enrolled at the University of Adelaide, where she studied medicine.

After graduating, Helen spent two years working in infant health in England, Ireland and India. She returned to Adelaide in 1906, starting a private practice and taking up position at the Adelaide Children's Hospital and Adelaide Hospital. In 1909, she co-founded the School for Mothers, this became the 'Mothers' and Babies' Health Association in 1927.

Helen was involved in the University of Adelaide, serving on the council from 1914 - 1960, the first woman in Australia to be elected in this position.

Helen died in 1967, with the Medical Journal of Australia attributing the success of South Australia's infant welfare system to her efforts.
