SPECIAL GUEST: JANA PITTMAN
Jana will take you on a roller coaster through the ups and downs of her sports career, her transition into medicine and how she balances it all with her 6 kids. While she is regularly at capacity, she is a strong believer in making the impossible doable.
Two times World Champion, Four times Commonwealth Champion, in the sport of athletics, Jana Pittman personifies resilience and determination.
When continued injuries hampered her athletic career and could have signalled retirement, she swapped the track for the ice. Jana joined the Australian Women’s bobsleigh team, to become the first women to represent Australia in both the Summer (2000 & 2004) and Winter Olympic Games (2014).
Off the track Jana has completed a Bachelor of Medicine & Surgery at the University of Western Sydney in 2019 (graduating with 1st class honours and the university medal) and is now a junior doctor at a hospital in Western Sydney. She has also completed a Masters of Reproduction Medicine at University of NSW and has initiated her PhD in Obstetrics (focusing on aspects of uterus transplantation).
With her own personal scare with cervical dysplasia, Jana became an ambassador for the ‘Australian Cervical Cancer Foundation’. Jana is also helping establish one of Australia’s Uterus transplant teams and works with the international Society for uterus transplant (ISUTx), a new science providing women with uterine infertility the chance to potentially carry a child.
With her keen interest in women’s health, Jana hopes to progress her medical career towards becoming an Obstetrician and Gynaecologist.
The event will be emceed by the charismatic Johanna Scott. Johanna is the founder of Make Do Co., a coaching business that sits at the intersection of happiness and work.
