Dr Wendy Freeman
Wendy has a medical degree and worked for many years in general practice. She has completed post graduate training in allergy through the University of Western Sydney and worked in the allergy department at the Royal Melbourne Hospital until 2021. She also currently works part time at the Centre for Food Allergy Research (CFAR) which is part of the Murdoch Children's Research Institute (MCRI) in Melbourne. Wendy has done volunteer work for Allergy & Anaphylaxis Australia (A&AA) for 15 years and since the start of 2021 has been employed there as a Health Management Educator. Two of Wendy’s three teenage children are at risk of anaphylaxis to multiple foods (egg, dairy, fish, kiwi fruit, sesame seed, cashew, and pistachio) and so she has many years’ experience with the daily management of food allergies. Wendy is an associate member of the Australasian Society of Clinical Immunology and Allergy (ASCIA). She has been involved with the National Allergy Strategy since its inception in 2015 on steering and project committees and is passionate about improving the lives of people living with allergy.
