Management and staff

Our team

Macular Disease Foundation Australia has its main office in Sydney and an office in Melbourne but operates a national program of activities across Australia. In addition to a team of dedicated professionals, our work is also supported by a loyal team of volunteers, many who have lived experience of macular disease.

MDFA is led by a full-time Chief Executive Officer, Dee Hopkins.

I have a strong personal connection to MDFA’s cause. My father had age-related macular degeneration, meaning I have a hereditary risk of the disease.
