Penny Adams has a reputation, not only with her patients, but also media audiences for her caring nature and a lively sense of humour. An expert in general practice, her attitude to continuing her extensive medical knowledge is best exemplified by the fact that in typical Penny fashion, she wasn’t satisfied with just attaining an RACGP Fellowship, she had to top the Nation.
Penny Adams has been involved with both print and television media over the years. She was a regular medical columnist for “Ask the expert” in Woman’s Day from 2002 till 2003 and Health writer for “Essentials” in the Sydney Morning Herald in 2006. Dr Penny is the host of the medical advertising television show “Feelgood” and regularly appears in TVC’s, infomercials such as the Probiotics Yakult in 2004 and Erectile Dysfunction in 2002. Dr Penny was the resident GP on the Mornings with Kerri-Anne.
In 2005, Penny Adams co-authored ‘Motherguilt’ with Ita Buttrose. This book, which reached the top 10 non-fiction bestsellers, deals with issues facing mothers in the 21st century.
