DR HAZEL MACTAVISH-WEST (2017) is very proud to be one of six of Tasmania's 2017 Churchill Fellows, and thrilled to have the chance to be a part of the organising committee to host the 2019 National Convention here in April next year.
"It won't be long now til the 2018 Churchill fellows are announced! AND we all get to put our glad-rags on again for the Government House 'do'! Wishing everyone all the best with their travels and reporting.
Make sure you're registered for the convention. Last year I found the diversity of fellows I met was an inspiration - many passed on valuable hints and tips for planning my fellowship.
Oh, and if you are in a "vegetable-y" type of mood - check out my report!"
