Pharmacist wins grant for health ethics research
Clinical pharmacist Timothy Hanlon has received the 2001 Mary Philippa Brazill Foundation Grant for research and education in health ethics.
The Catholic Leader reports that Mr Hanlon has been undertaking doctoral research in pharmacy ethics at the University of Queensland, aided by the $5000 grant. He is also working at the Mater Hospitals, South Brisbane.
The foundation was set up jointly in 1993 by the Mercy Sisters, the Loreto Sisters, the Sisters of the Good Shepherd, the Faithful Compansions of Jesus, and Dr Bernadette Tobin of Melbourne. It honours the memory of St Mary Philippa Brazill, who left Ireland aged 14, to finish her education in Melbourne and went on to join the Sisters of Mercy.
Applications for the 2002 grant close at the end of August (call 03 9499 1577 for further information).
