Parkinson’s ACT award – ANU Medical School

In 2013 we were very proud to establish the Parkinson’s ACT Inc. Award at the ANU Medical School.

The award was the inspiration of Dr George Webb, a member of the Parkinson’s ACT management committee.

In 2015 the award was given a new title in recognition of George’s tireless work for those living with Parkinson’s in the ACT and beyond: The Parkinson’s ACT George Webb Memorial Award.

The award provides $1,200 to help a third year student with a special interest in neurology to undertake at an elective placement at a centre of excellence, either in Australia or abroad.

Members of Parkinson’s ACT also volunteer as patient educators at the medical school, to help doctors in training learn more about diagnosis and the experience of those living with Parkinson’s.

Together we can make a difference.
