Announcement: Glen Paley Memorial Award for Outstanding Contribution to AHPA

We are thrilled to recognise Associate Professor Sue Devine as the recipient of our Glen Paley Memorial Award for Outstanding Contribution to AHPA. Established to honor individual achievement within AHPA, this award celebrates those who have significantly contributed to our mission of 'Leadership in Health Promotion' and honours Glen (Glenys) Paley (1961-2015) who was a cherished member of the health promotion community.

A/Prof Sue Devine has been an invaluable member of AHPA QLD for many years, demonstrating unwavering commitment and contribution in numerous capacities. Her extensive health promotion experience, dedication to teaching, research, and mentorship at James Cook University, has left a lasting impact on our profession and its future leaders.

Sue’s advocacy efforts, particularly her support for AHPA membership and IUHPE Registration, highlight her passion for our field. She has played a key role in promoting health promotion activities, such as the Advocacy Workshop in Townsville, leveraging her extensive networks to boost event participation.
Moreover, Sue’s capacity-building work through AHPA QLD Branch activities and her role in hosting student and early career professional events demonstrate her commitment to fostering the next generation of health promotion professionals. Her promotion of AHPA to students and staff further underscores her dedication to professional development.

As an academic, Sue has coordinated collaborative early career pathway activities and events, guiding individuals towards achieving their professional goals. Her advocacy for equity, particularly in rural and remote locations, is reflected in her research collaborations and practical initiatives.

Congratulations, Sue, on this well-deserved recognition! Your contributions to AHPA and the health promotion community are commendable and much appreciated.
