Suzanne Gleeson is a long-serving member of the Australian Health Promotion Association. To acknowledge and recognise Suzanne’s tenure, contribution and commitment to health promotion the Board resolved to establish the AHPA Suzanne Gleeson Professional Development Scholarship Fund.
For 15 years Suzanne has contributed to its functioning at the state and national level and during this time she has been involved in every aspect of AHPA’s operations. Suzanne was made a Fellow of AHPA in 2014.
The purpose of the AHPA Suzanne Gleeson Professional Development Scholarship Fund is to support practitioners to develop their health promotion competencies with a particular focus on continuing professional development to support requirements related to practitioner registration.
