Pharmacy Daily - - Front Page -

LUCY Walker, owner of Ter­ryWhite Chem­mart Phar­macy in Goondi­windi, Queens­land and Tas­ma­nia’s Deputy Chief Phar­ma­cist, Samuel Hal­l­i­day, have been named among the 112 re­cip­i­ents of the Churchill Fel­low­ships for 2018.

The Win­ston Churchill Memo­rial Trust was es­tab­lished in 1965 to hon­our the former Bri­tish Prime Min­is­ter, and ful­fil his wish for peo­ple from all walks of life to travel the world to gain new knowl­edge and share ideas.

“Fel­low­ships are awarded to ev­ery­day Aus­tralians who are pas­sion­ate about chal­leng­ing the sta­tus quo to cre­ate or make a pos­i­tive im­pact on our so­ci­ety,” the Trust said in a state­ment an­nounc­ing this year’s win­ners.

The Fel­low­ships, worth around $30,000 each on aver­age, aim to pay for travel for up to eight weeks for ex­perts to un­der­take a range of projects across the globe, with the aim of “ad­dress­ing chal­lenges Aus­tralia is fac­ing right now”.

Walker is be­ing funded to “bring in­no­va­tive global phar­macy prac­tices to her ru­ral com­mu­nity,” via a trip to Abu Dhabi, the UK, Ire­land, Ger­many, Canada, the USA and New Zealand.

And Hal­l­i­day will travel to the US, Canada, Ger­many, the Nether­lands, Aus­tria and Is­rael to “in­ves­ti­gate vari­ances of in­ter­na­tional ap­proaches to the reg­u­la­tion of med­i­cal cannabis”.

Churchill Fel­low­ship ap­pli­ca­tions for next year open on 01 Feb 2019.
