New book to inspire others to study at University

Monday, 25 July 2016


HealthInfoNet's Dr Mick Adams recently launched his new book, My journey through the academic mist.

Dr Mick Adams' (Uncle Mick to most) journey through the academic mist began in 1976. His latest book is about the challenges, frustrations and blocks he needed to overcome to reach his goals. It is hoped that the book will inspire all students to realise their full potential.

Mick holds a PhD in Public Health from Queensland University of Technology and a Master of Arts (Indigenous Research and Development), Centre for Aboriginal Studies, Curtin University of Technology. Prior to undertaking his postgraduate studies he undertook a Bachelor of Social Work (James Cook University), a Bachelor of Applied Science (Aboriginal Community Management and Development) (Curtin) an Associate Diploma in Social Work and a Community Development Certificate (South Australia Institute of Technology).
