In 2018, ASHM proudly announced the establishment of The Levinia Crooks Emerging Leader Awards. These eponymous awards honours the legacy of the late Adjunct Professor Levinia Crooks AM—a leader in public health and ASHM Chief Executive Officer from 1999-2017. Two awards will be given annually to recognise the outstanding work of emerging leaders in the field of viral hepatitis; and another working in blood borne viruses and sexually transmissible infections (BBV and STI). The awards place importance on fostering emerging leaders to continue to develop leadership that is bold, innovative, inclusive and that inspires collaboration in the sector.
The Levinia Crooks Emerging Leader – Viral Hepatitis awardee will accept their award at the 2019 Australasian Viral Hepatitis Elimination Conference where they will also deliver a 10-minute, unique presentation. The awardee receives conference registration, funding for travel and accommodation to attend the conference if required and ASHM membership for a year.
