Jane Anderson, The Latrobe Valley Health Advocate

"What makes me optimistic are all the conversations that I have with people in the community."
Jane Anderson is the Latrobe Health Advocate. 


Reporting directly to the Health Minister, Jane’s role is to provide independent advice to the Victorian Government on behalf of Latrobe Valley communities on system and policy issues affecting their health and wellbeing.

In our November 2020 Optimism Cafe conversation with The Centre for Optimism's Victor Perton, Jane shared what makes her optimistic, insights into her role, Post-COVID experiences and resilience and the public health aspects of optimism and pessimism.
