AFGW NSW was delighted to announce that this year’s Jamieson Award was given to Beryl Lin. Beryl received her award at this year’s Sophia Holland Lecture event where Prof Adrian Piccoli was guest speaker.
Beryl who completed her final year Medicine last year is currently enrolled in a Masters of Clinical Epidemiology at the University of NSW, and plans to undertake her PhD in physician subspecialty or medical education. Among her prodigious awards and service to her university community through multiple committees and mentoring roles, Beryl also found time to volunteer for external community associations including:
The Water Well Project (not-for-profit, health promotion charity) delivering health education sessions to migrants, refugees and asylum seekers.
The National Justice Project (not-for-profit legal service) reviewing medical records for legal cases in Aboriginal health and asylum seekers in detention.
The Medical Students Aids Project – Birthing Kit Project volunteer.
She hopes to use her skills ‘to continue training and learning to become a physician-scientist, mentoring future young people and to continue my involvement in teaching/education of medical trainees‘.
