The two winners of the 2018 Allen Martin Scholarships were announced at the Allen Martin Memorial Lecture in November.
Clinical neuropsychologist and Monash University Research Fellow, Dr Kate Gould, received a scholarship for her Australian-first research to help protect people with acquired brain injury (ABI) from cyber scams.
Danielle Sansonetti, an occupational therapist and senior clinician at the Alfred Health ABI Unit, will look at ways to optimise independence for individuals with ABI through successful application of daily routines after they transition to the community.
The lecture was presented by Professor Fary Khan, who discussed the “evolving role of rehabilitation in global health”.
The two $5000 Allen Martin Research Scholarships are sponsored by the Rotary Club of Kew and Robinson Gill lawyers.
