Dr Annmaree Watharow is a PhD candidate at the University of Technology, Sydney, researching the hospital experiences of people who are deafblind or have dual sensory impairments. It wasn’t until Annmaree’s final year of medicine that she was diagnosed with Usher Syndrome. Annmaree went on to be a General Practitioner, returning to university to complete a masters in psychological medicine, to enable her to move into clinical mental health as a GP-therapist. In addition to her PhD inquiry into hospital experiences, Annmaree is interested in improving access at university for people with sensory impairments. She has also developed and trialed a communication tool to aid identification and recognition of people with sensory impairments.
