William Yeung

Biography

William Yeung is a medical student and health advocate with diverse experiences across the research, advocacy and clinical fields. He has worked alongside academic, community and clinical partners to elevate mental health, youth empowerment and health-tech/data issues at the grassroots, national and global levels. These range from researching the biopsychosocial determinants of wellbeing and health at Neuroscience Research Australia and his clinical hospital, to engaging in community and school advocacy with the Black Dog Institute. He has experience with designing digitally based mental health interventions with ReachOut and the Young and Well CRC, in addition to consulting upon numerous WHO and PMNCH projects internationally. A staunch believer in participatory design and the merits of seeing things from all sides, he strives to bring this multifaceted perspective to each of his projects as a means of providing as methodologically rigorous and holistic an assessment of the work as possible. As a member of the Young Experts: Tech 4 Health global youth council to the Transform Health Coalition, he is optimistic on tech's ability to improve health data and service delivery under a evidence-based, collaboratively designed regulatory framework that ensures efficacy and safeguards end-user rights.
