All the winners of Australia’s Health MVPs 2018

Richard Laycock 8 February 2018

Bobblehead of winnersfinder has awarded 16 notable Australians with Health MVP bobbleheads.

Australia's biggest comparison website finder.com.au has unveiled the first Australian Health MVP (most valuable people) winners, with the recipients ranging from Olympians to neurosurgeons to mental health advocates and dieticians.

All the winners work tirelessly in their areas to help to ensure that Australia is a healthier place to live for everyone, whether it be through their work in cancer research, Indigenous health, medicine, mental health advocacy, nutrition or promotion of physical fitness.

In 2018, we identified 16 people who regularly strive to make Australia a healthier place to live. And to show our appreciation for these people, each winner will receive a custom-made bobblehead in their likeness (if you're curious as to what they look like you can head over to the Health MVP winners page).

And now without further ado, here are the 2018 winners:

  1. Annie Crawford (founder of the Can Too Foundation)
  2. Donna Meads-Barlow (founder of the DANII Foundation)
  3. Dr Charlie Teo (founder of the Charlie Teo Foundation)
  4. Dr Jessica Dean (board member for beyondblue)
  5. Ellyse Perry (ambassador for the LBW Trust and the McGrath Foundation)
  6. Glenn McGrath (president of the McGrath Foundation)
  7. Ian Thorpe (advocate for ReachOut.com)
  8. Joe Williams (mental health advocate)
  9. Kelly Cartwright (ambassador for the START Foundation)
  10. Kurt Fearnley (Paralympian and disability advocate)
  11. Lyndi Cohen (nutritionist and dietician)
  12. Matthew Cooke (chair of Native Title PBC, AMS CEO and PHN director)
  13. Sam Webb (co-founder of LIVIN)
  14. Susan Alberti (founder of the Susan Alberti Medical Research Foundation)
