Three UQ Pharmacy Alumni - Lisa Nissen, Bruce Elliot and Geraldine Moses - have been elevated to the status of Fellows of the Pharmaceutical Society of Australia.
National President of PSA, Grant Kardachi, said Dr Moses was elevated to a Fellow of the Society for exceptional service to the profession of pharmacy and to the PSA through her contribution on the Queensland Branch Council and Committee over nine years and for her commitment to CPD across the state of Queensland.
“As well as providing leadership to the Queensland Branch committee, Dr Moses has presented to Queensland Branch members for more than a decade through MMR Stage 1 Workshops, Clinical Therapeutics Workshops and QUM in Aged Care workshops, activities that she developed with colleagues to ensure that members had access to frequent and quality CPD,” Mr Kardachi said.
“Professor Nissen, who is currently President of the Queensland Branch of PSA, has been elevated to a Fellow of the Society for her exceptional service to the profession and to the Society through her contribution as Branch President in her first term for three years and now in her second term.”
Mr Kardachi said the honour also reflected Professor Nissen’s enormous volume of contribution to various National and State PSA internal and external committees.
“As well, Professor Nissen is the only recipient of both the Young Pharmacist of the Year - 2002 and the Pharmacist of the Year-2008 awards from the Society,” Mr Kardachi said.
“Mr Elliot was elevated for exceptional service to the profession of pharmacy and to the Pharmaceutical Society of Australia through his contribution as Vice-President in the Queensland Branch for more than five years.
“The honour is also in recognition of his inspirational leadership during the Queensland flood disaster of 2011 during his term of Branch President as well as his significant volume of contribution to National and State PSA internal and external committees.”
