Child Health Promotion Research Centre (CHPRC) volunteers were acknowledged at a special morning tea this week.
The event was held during Volunteer WA week to thank ECU’s student research volunteers.
Volunteers were awarded certificates in acknowledgement of their achievement towards the CHPRC’s five Volunteer Competency Levels.
The volunteer program enables ECU students to obtain a variety of practical research skills in a supportive multi-disciplinary research centre. Henrietta Quinlan was awarded 'CHPRC Volunteer of the Year' for her endless contribution to CHPRC research and in recognition of her dedication and exemplar skills.
Henrietta has recently been offered a short term contract within the CHPRC to support an ongoing research project.
CHPRC Director Associate Professor Stacey Waters welcomed visitors, staff and volunteers to the morning tea and thanked students for their contribution to the Centre.
“The CHPRC relies on the dedication of its volunteers and practicum students to conduct high quality applied research in Western Australian schools,” Associate Professor Waters said.
“We look forward to welcoming more ECU student volunteers to gain practical experience in our dynamic research centre.”
To learn more about the volunteer program, ECU students (undergraduate and post graduate) should contact the CHPRC on 9730 6350 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
