WHA Medal of Distinction 2019 - Call for Nominations

5 August 2019

Do you know of a colleague or leader in women's healthcare whose exceptional endeavours have led to genuine improvements in women’s health?

If you do, please nominate them for the Women's Healthcare Australasia Medal of Distinction for 2019, to be awarded at the WHA Safety & Quality Insight Forum on 26-27 November 2019. 

The WHA Medal of Distinction honours those individuals who have made an outstanding contribution to improving the health of women through service provision, leadership or advocacy.  The Medal of Distinction may be awarded both to individuals directly affiliated with WHA and also to members of the broader healthcare community.

Current Women's Healthcare Australasia Policy for the Medal of Distinction:

The medal may be awarded to members and non members of Women's Healthcare Australasia.  For those directly affiliated with WHA, the criteria for awarding the Medal of Distinction include a significant period of service to WHA, and sustained leadership and advocacy for women’s health. The Medal of Distinction is not awarded for long service but, rather, for exceptional and meritorious service. For members of the broader community, the criterion is recognition at a national level for leadership and advocacy for women’s health.

How to Nominate:

Please fill in the attached form and email to admin2018@wcha.asn.au by Friday 23 August 2019.  If you have any questions regarding nominations, please call our team on +61 (02) 6185 0325.

Thank you for your ongoing support for Women's Healthcare Australasia and contributing to this initiative to acknowledge the dedication of individuals to improve the health of women across Australia.
