Jessica is an Australian Learning and Teaching Fellow and has received a number of prestigious awards, including the Australian Award for Excellence in Teaching and the AFR Emerging Leader Award in recognition of her transformative leadership.

Janelle McAlpine has recently completed a PhD examining the associations between antenatal nutrition, its determinants and birth outcomes with Griffith University. Her research interests include the effects of micronutrition on both healthy and complicated pregnancies, the role of the midwife in optimising antenatal nutrition and factors that influence a woman’s dietary decision making throughout her pregnancy.
