Marlene Dalziel

Marlene is a Health Promotion Practitioner with a background in social planning and community development across local government and the primary health care sector.  She has lived and worked in the Shire of Cardinia, on the rural urban fringe for over 25 years; she is passionate about her community, especially as these people are considered to live in metropolitan Melbourne but have poor access to infrastructure and services. 

Marlene has been a member of her local small rural health service Board of Management (Koo Wee Rup Regional Health Service), for over 10 years, gaining considerable understanding of both aged care services and acute hospitals, in addition to her primary health care work. With an accounting background, she has actively contributed to the Risk and Audit Committee of the health service and prioritises service value for costs incurred. She continues to be involved with local community services, especially in relation to social justice opportunities.
