Associate Professor Jane Freemantle’s main career focus is as a paediatric epidemiologist with a focus on working with Aboriginal children and communities. Her PhD research at the University of Western Australia developed a mortality profile, describing infant and childhood deaths in WA from 1980-1998 inclusive using linked population data which she has subsequently extended to include deaths to the end of 2002. Her post-doctoral research reported on the association between previous hospitalization and mortality for the WA cohort.

Jane is currently funded by the ARC to develop a mortality profile of Victoria's Aboriginal (and non-Aboriginal) children 1998-2008 using an innovative method and research process.  For further information please visit www.vacms.net.au.

In 2005, Jane was awarded the QANTAS New Investigator Award for excellence in research, in 2007, the Western Australian Government annual ‘Healthy Partnerships Award’, and in 2008, the Healthway Award for Excellence in Health Promotion. In 2008, she was awarded Life membership of the Public Health Association of Australia.
