New Award to Recognise Achievement in Gynaecological Cancers
Cancer Australia is calling for nominations for its first Jeannie Ferris Cancer Australia Recognition Award.
The Jeannie Ferris Cancer Australia Recognition Award will recognise outstanding contribution to improving outcomes for women with gynaecological cancers.
The Award is open to:
- those with a personal experience of gynaecological cancer, as a woman with a diagnosis of gynaecological cancer, as a community member, or family members or carers who have been directly involved in supporting a woman with gynaecological cancer; and
- health professionals or researchers working in the area of gynaecological cancers.
The Award comprises a gift of $2,000 and a commemorative token.
This Award is named in honour of the late Jeannie Ferris, former Senator for South Australia who was passionately committed to raising awareness about gynaecological cancer in Australia. Senator Ferris was diagnosed with ovarian cancer in October 2005 and passed away in April 2007.
Closing date: 3 June 2013, at 5.00 pm.
