Dr Neha Pandeya is a graduate from the University of Queenslandand and currently in her second year of general practice training. Neha spent her first year in General Practice working at the Southern Queensland Centre of Excellence in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Primary Health Care (CoE) in Inala and has a special interest in mental health.
