On May 7 the 2015 Susan Alberti Medical Research Foundation Mother’s Day luncheon was held at Leonda by the Yarra. Guest speaker Dr Judith Slocombe provided an inspirational speech about her life and experiences and congratulated St Vincent’s Institute of Medical Research and Susan Alberti on encouraging women to embrace motherhood and working in medical research.
Dr Lorien Parker was the recipient of the 2015 Susan Alberti Women in Research Award, which provides funding toward a research assistant while Lorien is spending precious time with her new born baby.
We are proud to announce that $35,000.00 was raised at the luncheon. Thank you to all who attended and helped contribute to such a worthy cause.
