A/Prof Anne Abbott graduated from Adelaide University Medical School and completed neurologist training at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Adelaide. She moved to Melbourne and did a PhD in stroke prevention at the Austin Hospital and post-doctoral research at the Baker IDI Heart and Diabetes Institute.
A/Prof Abbott’s major research discovery was that a person’s risk of stroke can be reduced by at least 80% by them adopting a healthy lifestyle and the appropriate use of medication. These measures reduce the risk of stroke and other complications (like heart attack) and reduce the need for surgical procedures by reducing or eliminating the deleterious effects of ‘risk factors’ such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, smoking or physical inactivity.
