State Youth Ambassadors for Health Research Announced

7 October 2010

Research Australia has announced the State winners of the National Youth Ambassador for Health Research competition.

The essay/video based competition asked year 9 and 10 students from across Australia to share their thoughts on “Medical technology will always play a critical role in our lives”.

The National winner will be announced over the coming weeks.

State winners will join the 2010 Research Australia National Youth Ambassador for Health Research in a forum to develop a priorities paper for health and medical research. They will be given the opportunity to raise their concerns with media, key opinion leaders and politicians. They will also have the opportunity to participate in a mentoring program with researchers from universities and institutes and be the youth voice of their peers.

Congratulations to our 2010 State Ambassadors

Medtronic was very proud to be the Diamond sponsor of this program. We are really looking forward to following the activities of all of the Youth Ambassadors.
