Dr Thew is the endocrinologist at the Women's Mental Health Clinic (WMHC) and has over 20 years experience working as a clinical endocrinologist in private practice and attached to Royal Melbourne Hospital. Her PhD research topic was Studies of Insulin Resistance in Human Adiopocytes and she maintains a particular  interest in Type 11 diabetes and Polycystic Ovary Syndrome.
