My moment has come

  • Looking at UQ Associate Dean of Indigenous Engagement for the Faculty of Medicine Dr Maree Toombs, you wouldn’t think she has a truck licence, but you’d be surprised!
  • The COVID-19 pandemic has given many people an opportunity to pause and reflect on what’s most important. And for UQ Adjunct Professor of Public Health Sandra Creamer AM, that has always been family.
  • The opportunity for law students to immerse themselves in real-world legal issues is invaluable. UQ’s Pro Bono Centre provides this platform, as well as a vital resource to help meet community legal needs. 
  • An Indigenous-owned, Supply Nation certified IT business has created new opportunities for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples with the establishment of a perpetual scholarship. 
  • When we first met An Tran, she was a first year Bachelor of Dentistry student. The daughter of Vietnam War refugees, Tran was raised to appreciate opportunities and make the most of them.
  • Less than 24 hours after Claire Bermingham was told her precious son had cancer, she watched on as three-year-old Archer began his chemotherapy with a drug called vincristine. 
  • An incredible discovery made at UQ’s Queensland Brain Institute (QBI) was shared in 2017. It has the potential to change the lives of 472,000 Australians with dementia, and the 1.6 million loved ones who provide their care.
