Heather Wallace, PhD student at the Judith Lumley Centre, was awarded the Nurses Board of Victoria Legacy Limited 'Marjory Taylor Fellowship'.
The fellowship is in honour of Matron Marjory Taylor (1920 - 2006). Marjory was an outstanding nurse and mentor, and the Director of Nursing at The Geelong Hospital from 1956–1981.
This fellowship will cover some of the costs for Heather to attend and present at the International Confederation of Midwives Congress in Toronto in June this year. Her presentation will be on her qualitative research work in Timor-Leste which has focused on reproductive health decision making.
The presentation of the fellowship took place at the Melbourne Town Hall on Friday, 12 May. Prof Angela Taft (one of her PhD supervisors) and Lisa McKenna (Head of School of Nursing and Midwifery) joined the celebrations.
