Pursuit Award

Sarah Verdon has been named as a finalist of the Pursuit Award. Here is the description of the award from the Bloorview Research Institute's website:
"The Pursuit Award recognizes current PhD students and recent alumni from around the globe for their outstanding achievements in childhood disability research.
Finalists are chosen based on significance of research results, methodologic rigour, empirical content, and impact on childhood disability care."
Sarah will fly to Canada in May to make a presentation about her research along with the other two finalists. The winner will be announced after the presentations.

 Jane McCormack was runner-up for this award in 2013.
It is wonderful to see that Charles Sturt University's PhD students are being recognised for making an important contribution to international childhood disability research.
