Emmie Russell Prize - 2019 Recipient

Monday 11, Nov 2019

The Emmie Russell Memorial Prize was initiated by Emmie Russell, one of Australia’s first and most highly regarded orthoptists. In order to encourage excellence in research among younger orthoptists, Emmie Russell initiated the prize in 1975. The award is presented to a graduate from one of the recognised Australian training schools for the best presentation at the OA Annual Scientific Conference. The presentation is judged on its value to the profession, scientific content and integrity, clarity and presentation.

The 2019 recipient was Shanelle Sorbello for her paper entitled “Post stroke vision care in NSW:  What are the care pathways and are they working?”

Congratulations Shanelle!
