Mrs Candice Liddy-Stokes is of both Aboriginal and Indian descent. She was born and raised in Darwin, Northern Territory. Candice graduated from a Bachelor of Physiotherapy at the University of Melbourne in 2012 and moved back home to Darwin where she has spent 10 years working as a clinician in a variety of roles providing physiotherapy services in the acute hospital, remote health setting, as a sole trader and as part of a rehabilitation multi-disciplinary team at Palmerston Regional Hospital. Candice’s passion for improving health outcomes for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people has driven her to explore other ways she can have an impact through research. She has recently taken on a role at Flinders University as a Program Manager in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health at the College of Rural and Remote Health. Candice has been accepted to study a Master of Public Health through Melbourne University and looks forward to building her capacity in clinical and non-clinical roles.
