St Vincent’s Everyday Hero – Adam Steinberg

Adam has been an ardent representative for the wellbeing of his medical colleagues as they confront emotional stress on a daily basis.  Through the STAR program, he has strived to contribute to the supportive and compassionate nature of our health service while bringing his initiative, integrity and kindness to the peer role and in every encounter he makes within the hospital.

Having worked in international community development post disasters, Adam has said he has been keenly sensitive to the “whole gamut of human emotion”.  He has developed a deep interest in psychosocial support.  This empathy has translated to his work on the STAR program and in particular his care and concern for junior doctor support and wellbeing.  Adam has actively promoted the service and other avenues of assistance through the junior medical network at our hospital.
