Molly Awarded Churchill Fellowship!

"I am absolutely delighted to inform you all about ‘our’ Molly Carlile and a Churchill Fellowship This is terrific news! Molly has been awarded a 2008 Churchill Fellowship to travel overseas and explore health promotion activities using the arts. Her project, “Using the arts to support community ‘death discussions’”, will allow her to explore how the arts are being used in health promotion activities internationally. Molly hopes to identify successful strategies that can be applied to encouraging Australian communities to discuss issues of death, grief and loss using the performance, visual and creative arts as the catalyst.

"The Winston Churchill Memorial Trust has a vision of “Rewarding Australians striving for Excellence” and awards Fellowships annually to successful applicants across a range of disciplines. Applicants undergo a rigorous submission and selection process. This year 120 Churchill fellowships have been awarded nationally, 25 in Victoria. Molly will be presented with her Churchill Fellowship by the Governor of Victoria, Dr. David de Kretser AC, on July 18th 2008 at Government House, and plans to commence her Fellowship by travelling next year to the United States, United Kingdom and Ireland.

"I am sure you will all join me to congratulate her, as it is a magnificent achievement."

Anne Oakley, Chairperson
North and West Metropolitan Region Palliative Care Consortium
