UOW presents Community Fellowship Award to Mudgee for leadership in rural healthcare
The University of Wollongong Community Fellowship Award recognises the ongoing relationships between the University and its communities.
The Community of Mudgee was selected as the 2017 recipient of this award to celebrate the outstanding civic leadership of Mudgee, Gulgong and surrounding communities and to recognise their exceptional contributions in sponsoring initiatives to support the University of Wollongong’s Graduate Medicine students.
These communities worked tirelessly to support initiatives to attract and retain health care professionals to provide the region with continuous access to quality healthcare. This is a vision shared by the University of Wollongong and the Community Fellowship Award honours those that gave their time, energy and resources to strengthen regional communities.
In conferring the award, the University of Wollongong thanks the people of Mudgee, Gulgong and surrounding communities for their dedication, commitment and generosity of spirit in welcoming UOW medicine students into the community and making their placements a positive experience.
