Helen has received a United Nations Media Peace Award and an Australian Walkley Award. “I am delighted to be Patron of Healthy Bones Australia. I encourage women and men around the country to make their bone health a higher priority and help us reduce the serious impact of osteoporosis. My mother lived with this disease at a time when early intervention was not common and it greatly affected her life. This has made me a passionate advocate for prevention and early diagnosis of poor bone health. I am excited to be part of Healthy Bones Australia as we work to reduce the number of broken bones by improving bone health for all Australians."
