The Australian Health Promotion Association WA Branch invites you to the 2023 AHPA WA Branch General Meeting and Awards Night.
Celebrating 30 years of the Health Promotion Scholarships
The scholarships have been generously funded by Healthway and successfully coordinated by AHPA (WA Branch) since 1993. Over 75 graduates and 40 Aboriginal people have since completed placements in a vast range of health related organisations in the government and not-for-profit sector. The AHPA WA Branch would like to sincerely thank all the organisations, mentors and supervisors who have contributed to the success of this program.
We will hear from a panel of previous scholarship recipients about their experiences with the program and their career journeys since then. Please join us in celebrating the successes and opportunities made possible for the scholarship recipients through AHPA’s partnership with Healthway.
This event honours the late Dr Ray James, an admired thinker and innovator in health promotion. Following Ray’s death in 2008, the AHPA (WA Branch) endorsed the establishment of a memorial lecture to be held each year at the Annual General Meeting. With this year’s lecture made by the panel of scholarship recipients, the Branch hopes to stimulate innovation in health promotion and promote Ray’s passion and enthusiasm to health professionals working in the field.
