The SABII team sends a big congratulations to Adeline Tinessia, who graduated last week with a Master of Global Health. Congratulations, Addy! We’re glad to have you on the team.
We would also like to acknowledge Dr Kerrie Wiley who has been awarded a Faculty of Medicine and Health “Makers and Shapers” award for Outstanding Research (individual) category. Key achievements noted in Kerrie’s nomination include:

- Lead writer of the Global Health Security Network policy report on the Drivers of COVID-19 Vaccine Uptake and Strategies to Increase Vaccination Rates, launched by the Dean of the Harvard SPH Michelle Williams. Said report commissioner Adam Kamradt-Scott: “Words cannot express. This is really quite brilliant. Thank you!! It is an absolute pleasure to read, very informative, with exceptional use of empirical data and case studies to highlight and drive home your key messages.”
- Awarded an NHMRC investigator grant in 2022 and co-leading SABII.
What a fantastic recognition of all your achievements. Well done, Kerrie!!
