Dear Gabrielle. Welcome to the mhhehub. It's great that you have joined. If you have not already done so, please add yourself to the member map which we are hoping will support more face-to-face networking and collaboration between people who are based in the same geographical area - not many from Australia to date but perhaps you can help us to remedy that!.
