Congratulations to Sinead Kado of the University of Western Australia, winner of the 2022 ANZAHPE Post-registration Student Prize (Sponsored by Australian Medicines Handbook)
Hear from Sinead about her experience at the ANZAHPE conference and why she applied for a prize.
"As an early career researcher, I have often felt overwhelmed by the mountain I need to climb. However, ANZAHPE has been the comrade that has encouraged me to keep climbing one step at a time. Many of the members have been official and unofficial mentors and I attend the ongoing faculty development sessions. It was from one of these sessions that I was encouraged to apply for a student prize. My supervisors, ANZAHPE mentor (Anna Vnuk) and Megan Anakin all provided valuable feedback on my drafts. The conference afforded me an opportunity to present my work and attend many useful sessions. I particularly enjoy the workshops as they provide an opportunity to network with others. I would encourage others to be brave, start climbing the mountain, reach out for support and even if you don't win the prize you will have improved your thinking and writing."
