ECU partnered with the Australia Day Council of Western Australia to host the annual Great Australians breakfast held on Wednesday, 27 October at the Government House Ballroom.
Attended by Vice-Chancellor, Professor Kerry Cox, and other members of ECU’s senior leadership team, the breakfast celebrated the achievements of 2010 WA Australian of the Year, ECU’s Professor Ralph Martins and 2010 Australian of the Year, Professor Patrick McGorry.
Both professors spoke at the event, with Professor Martins discussing his research into Alzheimer’s disease while Professor McGorry discussed youth mental health issues.
Professor Cox said ECU was delighted to partner this inspiring breakfast.
“ECU undertakes teaching and research at exacting international standards with a priority on delivering positive outcomes in real time to those in the community we were established to serve. Professor Martins is an exemplar of our approach,” said Professor Cox.
