Speaking on "EndTrachoma by 2020: Can we do it?"
Lien wants to live in a world where avoidable forms of vision impairment don’t exist, where individuals are empowered, and human diversity is celebrated. She is one of 6 children; her parents were refugees who fled Vietnam by boat in the early 80s and founded a new life in Australia.
Lien holds a Bachelor of Optometry from the University of Melbourne and Master of Optometry from the University of NSW. She has experience working in low-income settings internationally (Sri Lanka, Vietnam and Papua New Guinea) as well as throughout Australia, providing eye-care services and building local eye personnel capacity through teaching, research and evaluation.
In 2013 she was awarded the inaugural D9800 Global Grant from the Rotary Foundation to study a Master of Public Health at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. She has since worked at Indigenous Eye Health (University of Melbourne), and now manages 2 delightful children as well as our Project EndTrachoma by 2020.
